The deadline to register is four weeks before the opening night of your production. We guarantee that the first 20 programs to register will be adjudicated. Schools registering after the first 20 will be added to our wait list. We will notify each school of its status.
We will send an email confirmation of your registration within 72 (business) hours of receipt of your application. The confirmation will contain information as to status. If you do not receive an email receipt confirmation after three (business) days, you should assume there was trouble transmitting the application and should contact the program immediately. Do not assume that we have received any documents we have not specifically confirmed.
Registration is completed online. Please print and keep copies of all completed forms and payments for your school records. Submission of these documents will secure a place in the competition for the first 20 registered schools that meet the eligibility requirements.
Submission of the required forms will provide our team with general information about each school and its musical theater production. Schools do not have to provide all of the production details about their upcoming musical at the time of the application submission. (For example, we understand that you may not yet have full cast information.) Please submit this information as soon as it is available.
All nominees will be announced April 16, 2018.
In addition to registering online, all school applicants must pay a $150 registration fee per cast. All registration fees go directly to funding the program. School purchase orders cannot be accepted.
Checks should be made payable to NMHSMTA. Registration fees must be paid in order for a school, or its students, to participate in our awards show on May 5, 2018. Once we receive your registration form, we will invoice you for the fee.
The school's registration fee covers all aspects of its participation in the program including adjudication and evaluations, student nominees, production nominees, Directors Choice Chorus participants, and Jimmy Award nominees.
We require each student nominated for an individual award or for the Directors Choice Chorus to complete a student registration form. That way we know that they are interested in the program and will make themselves available for it. Each student nominated by his/her teacher should complete and return a form to us. There is no fee to the student for participation.
