RELIVE THE MAGIC

While we can’t celebrate this year’s accomplishments of our participating schools, students, educators, parents, and supporters in person, we will certainly still be together. Join us for a virtual extravaganza on May 31st, and we hope you’ll celebrate with your own red carpet at home! Our artistic team has been working tirelessly with Austin creatives, Broadway & industry names, Long Center’s Select Ensemble, and countless other students to bring you an evening just as memorable.

This virtual ceremony will be hosted by Donelvan Thigpen, a graduate of Cedar Park High School and Cincinnati Conservatory of Music Theatre. He was a Select Ensemble member in 2014 when he was also nominated for Best Actor in a leading role. He is hosting the show from Las Vegas, where he plays Prince in Purple Reign.
