Leadership and nomination, adjudication and recognition, these factors all impact the theatre and its sustainability. Often, the individuals who play these crucial roles in the awards process are invisible – and even more so, their caregiving needs go unnoticed as wellNot this time.

Parent Artist Advocacy League is proudly partnering with Theatre Philadelphia to sponsor childcare for their selected nominators and adjudicators for the prestigious Barrymore Awards. Donate to the cause here – and select “This is for a memoriam or special occasion” – then write “Barrymore Awards Fund” in the blank so we process your gift for these incredible recipients!

If you are a Barrymore Award Nominator/Adjudicator and need to register to request funds, fill out this form. We will be checking each application with approved names and emails according to Theatre Philadelphia internal records.


Theatre Philadelphia is committed to altering multiple factors in their structure to increase access – you should check out the video details on that here! One of the crucial ways they are breaking ground in contributor support is intentionally seeking out childcare support with PAAL.

Our goal for this first year? $1500. So doable!
If we get 100 people to donate that minimum, we can reach our goal! There are 1.5 MILLION people in Philadelphia, 7.7 THOUSAND people on the Theatre Philadelphia Facebook Page, 1.5 THOUSAND people on the PAAL page. With those numbers, childcare support is so achievable!
