Nebraska High School Theater Academy adjudicators are performing arts professionals who provide schools with educationally focused feedback on musicals, one-acts and plays.

Adjudication process

We will inform schools of their scheduled adjudication dates. Once an adjudication date is determined, Omaha Performing Arts staff members will be in touch with the school’s primary contact person (usually the director or music director) to reserve complimentary tickets for each adjudicator. Tickets should be left at Will Call under the name “OPA Adjudicator.” Within one week of attending the performance, adjudicators will provide their feedback and scores to Omaha Performing Arts.

Please note that safety is our primary concern. Prior to adjudicators attending your school's production, please read the following guide: COVID-19 Adjudication Policies and Procedures.


Feedback (for any high school and middle school musical, one-act or play)

Adjudicators will complete a comprehensive response to the performance. Feedback will include praise and constructive criticism, focusing on a production’s strengths and opportunities for growth. Omaha Performing Arts staff members will email feedback to directors. Feedback is intended to serve as a learning tool for directors and students. Our goal is to provide you and your students with high-quality feedback that celebrates students’ work and encourages them to grow.
