Showcase Selection Committee


The IPAY Showcase Selection Committee comes together for two days in June every year to review over 100 applications of artists from genres as diverse as theater, musical theater, mime/physical comedy, dance, music, puppetry, opera, and more. The selection committee is comprised of experts in the field of performing arts for youth, including accomplished artists and artistic or programming directors, arts education directors, and children's festival directors. Selection Committee members typically serve two three-year terms, and typically 15 members serve each year. Should you be interested in becoming a part of the Showcase Selection Committee, we invite you to apply by filling out our nomination application [41K Microsoft Word Document].
