Actors’ Equity Association Announces Nominees for 2024 ACCA Awards

Actors’ Equity Association’s Advisory Committee on Chorus Affairs (ACCA) has announced the nominees for this season’s ACCA Award, honoring the chorus performers in a Broadway show. These four productions are: Hell’s Kitchen, The Heart of Rock & Roll, The Outsiders and Water for Elephants.

“This season has been an incredibly exciting one for the chorus,” said Al Bundonis, 2nd vice president of Actors’ Equity Association and chair of the ACCA. “In fact, there were more eligible companies than any other year since the ACCA Award for Outstanding Broadway Chorus began. The work of the chorus is not just vital to the storytelling of an individual production, but to the industry as a whole, and that contribution needs to be recognized. It is our hope that the Tonys and other theatre awards across the country will join us in honoring these gifted professionals for the incredible artistry, athleticism and passion they deliver on our stages every day. "

Presented by Equity’s Advisory Committee on Chorus Affairs, the ACCA Award is the only industry accolade of its kind to honor the distinctive talents and contributions made by the original chorus members of a Broadway musical. The award will be presented alongside this year’s Actors’ Equity Foundation Awards at a ceremony on June 24 in New York City.
