In the theater, we tell stories. What we review is the storytelling abilities put to work in each production, as a whole for the production and by individuals in specific roles. We send our best student storytelling artists to New York.
Each participating school’s musical production will be viewed and evaluated by three carefully selected adjudicators. In addition to awarding points according to detailed guidelines, each adjudicator will produce performance and production commentaries for each school as a learning tool. The awards criteria emphasize achievement, not budget or size of production.
Nominees for Best Actor and Actress awards will receive written evaluations from our adjudicators. Nominees for Best Supporting Actor and Actress awards will only be scored.
The highest scores in each category will determine our winners. Nominees will be announced in April. Winners will be announced at the our awards show May 7, 2022.
