2022 High School Musical Theatre Awards announced

SCHENECTADY – This week, the Collaborative School of the Arts announced the 6th annual High School Musical Theatre Awards, in partnership with The Broadway League and presented by the Times Union. The awards ceremony will be held at 7:00 pm on Saturday, May 14th at Proctors. The program celebrates the achievements of the region’s theatre students, highlighting the importance of musical theatre and arts education in the greater Capital Region. For this year’s event, there are 17 schools included, with Shenendehowa, Saratoga Springs, and Fort Ann high schools participating for the first time.

During the spring musical season, schools are adjudicated by a panel of educators, theatre experts and industry professionals in 11 performance and technical categories. When all the evaluations have been completed, scores are tabulated and certified.  The highest score determines the winner in each category, and winners are announced during the awards ceremony. Please see below for the full list of nominees.

The HSMTA program culminates on the MainStage at Proctors with an awards ceremony, modeled after the Tony Awards®. Winners are announced for each category, interspersed with lively production numbers from the shows nominated for Best Musical, and finalists for Best Actor and Best Actress. Additionally, students selected from each participating school perform in the opening and closing numbers. A full orchestra accompanies all these performances, with musical direction and choreography by local theatre professionals. Winners of the Best Actor and Best Actress categories travel to New York City to participate in the Jimmy Awards, a national competition for high school performers.
