Announcement of Jessie Awards Hiatus
It has been a difficult few years for everyone, and the performing arts have faced unique challenges during this time. One of the biggest challenges faced by the Jessies has been the engagement and involvement of the theatre community on our juries, committees, and Board of Directors. To that end, the Board of Directors has made the difficult decision for the Jessie Awards to go on hiatus and pause all jurying as of May 1, 2022.
