The Long Center, ZACH Theatre, and the University of Texas at Austin Department of Fine Arts present the 4th Annual Greater Austin High School Musical Theatre Awards, April 13 in Dell Hall.

Imagine Austin’s version of the Tony Awards. Every year, the Long Center brings together over 30 schools from our community to shine the spotlight on the hard work of thousands of students and teachers involved in arts education.

Join us for a spectacular evening of celebration where 31 high schools and over 2000 participating students will gather for an evening of live performances, awards, scholarships, special guests, and more.

Performances include fully executed numbers from the 8 schools nominated for Best Musical, lead actor and actress medleys showcasing the top 9 students in each category, an opening number performed by the Long Center Select Ensemble and introducing the individual nominees, a musical theatre tribute medley by the Long Center Select Ensemble, and a finale like nothing you’ve ever seen where two students from each of the 31 participating schools come together in an exciting song and dance extravaganza to top off the evening.

Awards are given in 15 categories: Best Musical Production, Best Lead Actor, Best Lead Actress, Best Supporting Actor, Best Supporting Actress, Best Featured Performer, Best Musical Direction, Best Choreography, Best Orchestra, Best Direction, Best Stage Crew, Best Scenic Design, Best Costume Design, Best Lighting Design and Best Ensemble.

In addition to beautiful glass trophies for top prizes in the competition, schools share over $35,000 in college scholarships, school program grants, and training opportunities.
