The Noel S. Ruiz Theatre at CM Performing Arts Center, Oakdale, NY

The mission of the Teeny Awards is to recognize and celebrate the talented theater students in Islip Township, encourage them to pursue their dreams, and to stimulate local interest while developing an understanding of the value of theater education in a well-rounded school curriculum.

The Teeny Awards reflect a commitment by the Islip Arts Council to recognize the high school theater experience as an opportunity for young people to prepare themselves for the world beyond school walls. CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD THE 2017 TEENY AWARDS PROGRAM.
