A Letter from the President

Hello My Friends!

Happy Fall and I hope you are all staying well! I also am hoping that
you are doing your best to keep your spirits up and theater happening as much as possible.

I would like to take this opportunity to clarify everything that is
going on with NJACT and the 2020 Perry Awards.

1. The 2020 NJACT Perry Awards will be live streamed on Sunday,
October 25th at 7pm.

2. Here is the link to purchase tickets- https://njact.vbotickets.com/events

3. There has been some opinions about the need to charge for the event but please be aware that trophies, venue, technicians, musicians, etc… do not come for free. We have worked to get it to the best possible pricing for our members and even at this pricing, the best we can hope for is not to lose that much money this year.

4. “If my husband/wife and I are watching together, do we have to purchase two ‘tickets’?” Each purchase gives you a link for one device. If you are your husband/wife etc.. are both watching on your laptop, then you only need one link. If you are watching downstairs in the living room and they are watching from upstairs in the bedroom, you need 2 links.

5. Ads can still be sent in today- information can be found on our website at https://njact.org/

6. There are trophies and plaques this year. After the ceremony, they will be split up across the state and we will make arrangements to get them to the appropriate people.

7. While there will not be any acceptance speeches going out live that evening, we encourage all the recipients to video themselves thanking their friends and family and post it on Facebook or other social media. Please be sure to tag us on Facebook at NJACT Perry Awards. Also follow us on Instagram and Twitter at “NJACTPerryAwards”. Feel free to use hashtags on all platforms: #njact #njactperryawards #perryawards2020 #perryawards

We hope that you will be joining us on October 25th for what will be a rather unique evening complete with presenters, musical numbers from the seven nominated musicals, a live band and even a brand-new opening number. All of this brought to you (socially distanced, of course) from Hamilton Stages at the Union County Performing Arts Center!
