“Once again, we’re inviting some of the most talented teens in the country to New York and giving them the opportunity to realize their Broadway dreams and earn significant scholarships. With over 100,000 students participating in 46 regions nationally, there are more young people than ever creating musical theatre and falling in love with Broadway,” said Charlotte St. Martin, President of the Broadway League. “Over the past few years an increasing number of Jimmy Awards alumni have gone on to star in hit Broadway shows and Touring productions proving that this program really is one of the most exciting and inspiring for performers and fans alike.”
The Jimmy Awards are the culmination of the National High School Musical Theatre Awards. Student performers qualify for the nationwide program by winning top honors at regional high school musical theatre awards ceremonies which are presented and/or sponsored by Broadway League member performing arts centers. More than 1,700 high schools in 25 states now participate in these annual events.
