Back in Business: Heller Awards Nominations are This Sunday

Don’t get us wrong — we’ve loved all the growing pains of creating theatre in a digital world these last two years. But we can say with all honesty that we’re so happy that the 2022 Heller Awards for Young Artists Ceremony will be returning to Dell Hall! We’re kicking things off big with a virtual Nominations Day stream to start the countdown to the big day. Tune in March 6 at 7:30pm on YouTube to watch with us!

You can expect a fully-produced opening number performed by the Select Ensemble, nomination announcements for 16 categories and 3 student achievement awards across 30+ school productions, and plenty of support and excitement for our return to the big stage.


Our 2021 Nominations stream started out with a musical number for the ages. Watch this collab from our Select Ensemble and HAYA alumni 👇


The show must go on – instead of skipping a year, we created an all-virtual production for 2021 with innovative tech from Co-Production House. Read all about it!



Relive the magic and see how our video capture translated to the big screen by watching the full 2021 Awards Ceremony all over again!
