The National High School Musical Theatre Awards®, better known as the Jimmy Awards, is a coast-to-coast celebration of outstanding student achievement, recognizing individual artistry in vocal, dance, and acting performance. The 2023 Jimmy Awards features 96 nominees from 48 regional awards programs making their Broadway dreams come true as they perform live at the Minskoff Theatre. During this unforgettable talent showcase, a panel of judges will select two students to receive the coveted awards of Best Performance by an Actor and Best Performance by an Actress.
“We are thrilled to welcome back the ever so talented Corbin Bleu as this year’s host of the Jimmy Awards. His extensive accomplishments across theatre, television, and film serve as great inspiration to the aspiring Jimmy Awards nominees,” said Charlotte St. Martin, President of The Broadway League. “This is an incredibly special evening where we gather to cheer on the 96 nominees all while experiencing the sheer joy of live musical theatre.”
“I’m so honored to come back and host the Jimmys live and in person this year! Having this opportunity to support and celebrate high school musical theatre and the importance of arts education fills my heart,” said Corbin Bleu.
The evening will also feature the INSPIRING TEACHER AWARD presented by WELLS FARGO honoring two teachers, who during the previous school year, provided valuable guidance and encouragement for their students pursuing performing arts. This is a recognition of the importance of theatre arts education in schools.
