National Jimmy Awards


We're proud to participate in the Broadway League's National High School Musical Theatre Awards, also known as the Jimmy Awards. Each year, two outstanding student performers (one lead actor and one lead actress) are nominated to join top students from across the country for a week of private coaching with University faculty, master classes with Broadway professionals and rehearsals in preparation for a special performance. National nominees are determined through an audition process.
