ABOUT OUR PROGRAM:

Broadway In Chicago is thrilled to invite high schools across the state of Illinois to participate in the Illinois High School Musical Theatre Awards. This Illinois chapter of the National High School Musical Theatre Awards serves as an annual national celebration of outstanding achievement in musical theater performance by high school students. IHSMTA categories include Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Scenic Design of a Musical, Best Direction of a Musical, and Best Overall Production.

The Illinois High School Musical Theatre Awards will select twenty-four finalists (12 actors & 12 actresses) to compete for the top honors in front of Chicago casting agents and theater professionals. Finalists will perform on stage at the Broadway Playhouse and receive tickets to a Broadway In Chicago show

From the twenty-four finalists, two winners (one lead actor, one lead actress) will receive an all-expense paid trip to New York to participate in a performance enrichment program and represent the state of Illinois at the National High School Musical Theatre Awards, on Broadway.
