The 2015 National High School Musical Theatre Awards is almost here, and ShowbizU has the best news, interviews and behind-the-scenes coverage for all our fans!
The Jimmy Award, named for legendary Broadway producer and theatre owner Jimmy Nederlander, is the most highly coveted and prestigious award for high school performers. This year, 52 students from across the country were selected by a panel of Broadway League judges to compete for Best Actor and Actress distinctions. These two lucky winners will be announced at the live Jimmy Awards Ceremony next Monday, June 29, on Broadway’s Minskoff Theater stage.
Before the show, the nominees will participate in an intensive weeklong program with some of Broadway’s biggest stars. We’ll be sharing updates as the group trains, workshops and rehearses individual and ensemble musical theatre performances, and gets ready for the big night.
We can’t wait to celebrate all the fantastic rising musical theatre stars, and we’d love for you to join us on the journey! Be sure to follow ShowbizU to get your fill:
Congratulations and break-a-leg to the 2015 nominees. We’ll see you soon for the start of what is certain to be a life-changing week!
