Since 2002, the East End Arts Teeny Awards has celebrated excellence in theater in East End Long Island area high schools.
We believe in unleashing the creativity of teens who perform on stage and those that work behind the scenes to make the magic happen.
We build a community of advocates for the performing arts in high school just as athletic boosters provide support for sports.
All year long, anonymous volunteer judges with theatre and arts experience attend all high school theatrical performances on the East End to identify the best for nomination in every category.
The 2023-2024 Judges Recruitment is open! The Teeny Awards are looking for individuals who work in the arts/theatre as directors, producers, choreographers, educators, technical staff and arts administrators. Apply at the link below:
The Teeny Awards ceremony is held in June and recognizes talent in the categories of Lead Actor, Lead Actress, Supporting Actor, and Supporting Actress. Awards are given to Play and Musical performance categories. Additional awards are given to Student Choreographers, Poster Designers, and Outstanding Performer in a Play or Musical.
Each ceremony includes favorite performances from the season.
Whether you have a student that’s studying performing arts or just want to revel in the joy of teens celebrating success, attend the Teeny Awards.
