About Our Program
The New Mexico High School Musical Theatre Awards recognizes individual and communal artistry in performance, and honors teachers and their schools’ commitment to performing arts education. We present these talented young performers with a unique opportunity to advance their education and careers in musical theatre, all while supporting the inclusion of musical theatre performance specifically and drama generally in our state's high schools.
High school musical theatre helps students succeed academically, individually and socially. All our children should have the opportunity to participate in a theater program in their high school.
If you support our work, please make a contribution. Your donation will make a significant difference for high school drama programs in New Mexico.
Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
Everyone is welcome here. Literally everyone. Any race, any culture, any sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression.
In theater, words are actions and actions bring about change and growth. So, join with us. Sing it, say it, mean it: every student deserves to be seen and heard — deserves a place in our society — in every story we tell, in every word and intention, in every action of our lives.
New Mexico High School Musical Theatre Awards, Inc. is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, EIN 81-5441467.
