It is with great sadness that we share with you that the Broadway League's 2020 Jimmy Awards program has been canceled due to the disruptions of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

We are encouraging students to still submit nationals audition videos, as we are looking for virtual solutions down the road. 


Students in grades 9-12 playing qualified lead roles in their adjudicated 2019/2020 NHSTA musicals are eligible to apply. Qualified lead roles are determined by the Broadway League. See the 2019/2020 list of qualified lead roles here:  2019-2020 Nationals Qualifying Lead Roles

Applications will be accepted starting in late-January 2020. Eligible students should submit an online application by Tuesday, April 14, 2020. To complete the application, please be prepared to submit the following items::

  • One-page resume
  • Headshot photo
  • Audition video No. 1: Perform a solo (32-bar cut) from the qualified lead role you played in your adjudicated 2019/2020 high school musical 
  • Audition video No. 2: Perform a solo (32-bar cut) of a musical theater ballad OR musical theater up-tempo piece of your choice
  • Music: Attach the piano/vocal score for the full song (not just the 32-bar cut) featured in video #1.  If the qualifying lead role you played performs more than one solo in the musical, please attach all other piano/vocal scores for those songs.  If you are invited to attend the live callback audition, please be prepared to sing any solo that your lead role performed in your school's musical.

Please note! Videos should showcase your audition abilities. Do NOT submit video from a fully staged or costumed production. 

The Nationals Callback Auditions scheduled for Saturday, April 18th at the Holland Center have been canceled.
