Nominees for this year’s 30th Anniversary Helen Hayes Awards will be announced tonight, Monday, January 27th, from the stage of the National Theatre, and, as they did last year, theatreWashington will host a live webcast of the event, starting at 7:20 pm.
The nominations are for professional productions staged in our area during calendar year 2013. This year the Helen Hayes Awards judges assessed 198 eligible productions, nominating 27 categories of performance and production excellence. Hosting the announcement will be theatreWashington Board Member Glen Howard. Guests at the National Theatre tonight may well find themselves interviewed on camera for the audience watching from home.
To watch the nominations, go to theatreWashington (or click the image above.) If last year is any judge, tweets will be flying fast and funny as soon as the proceedings begin (#hha30 or #dramaprom).

The Helen Hayes Awards presentation will be held Monday, April 21st, 2014. In a surprise departure from previous years, theatreWashington has announced that the 30th anniversary awards ceremony will by held at The National Building Museum.
