Misty Upham Award for Young Native Actors – Submission deadline Feb 28
February 28, 2023
The Yale Indigenous Performing Arts Program (YIPAP) is excited to announce the call for submissions for the Third Annual Misty Upham Award for Young Native Actors. This award was created in memory of the acclaimed Blackfeet actress Misty Upham and honors Native actors 25 and under.
The winner will receive $500, and transportation to and housing on Yale campus to be honored as part of an award ceremony at Yale in early May. They will also have the opportunity to be cast as an actor in performances in the annual YIPAP New Native Play festival. This will be the first year since the award was created that the festival will return to being held in person on the Yale campus, and we are so excited to host our first in person honoring ceremony for this award.
Native actors age 25 and under are invited to record themselves performing a monologue to be considered for submission. Video submissions are due Feb 28, 2023 and will be evaluated by a team of professional theater artists.
