The Society of London Theatre (SOLT) is looking for public panellists for the Olivier Awards 2018 with Mastercard!
The judging period for shows that are eligible for the Olivier Awards 2018 runs from 22 February 2017 for approximately 12 months.
The Olivier Awards are the most prestigious awards in London theatre and the 2018 ceremony will be held in a central London venue, with members of the panel invited to attend both the ceremony and the after-show party where they will be able to mingle with the stars.
Members of the public are needed for the following four judging panels: Theatre, Affiliate (smaller or non-West End London theatres), Opera and Dance. Panellists commit themselves to seeing all eligible productions in their categories (ranging from some 100 plays/musicals to some 30 operas). Panellists usually receive two free tickets to each show plus a free show programme. The position lasts for a year, is unpaid, and no expenses are paid.
To have the chance to become a panellist you will need to write a 150-word review of a production that you have seen in the last year, plus a list of all the other productions you have seen in that period. Please note that only people aged 18 years and over are eligible to apply.
Applications must be received by 5pm on Friday 20 January 2017. People chosen by Society of London Theatre to go through to the next stage of the process will be invited to attend a short interview at the SOLT offices in Covent Garden on either: Tuesday 7 February, Friday 10 February or Monday 13 February. Applicants will only be contacted if they have been selected for interview.
This is a wonderful chance to be at the heart of London theatre and to help decide who wins London’s most prestigious theatrical prize!
