The Broadway League has made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Jimmy Awards®

“We are heartbroken that so many of the 143,000 students who participate in high school musicals across the country will not have an opportunity to show off their hard work, and that 92 nominees won’t be able to realize their Broadway dreams this year by performing live on a Broadway stage at the Jimmy Awards in New York City," said Charlotte St. Martin, President of the Broadway League.

While the Jimmys are canceled for this year, we are exploring all our options and working through several scenarios for our Applause Awards regional awards program. We will continue to communicate updates as things evolve and become more clear. Thank you all for your patience and understanding during this time. You and your students are in our daily thoughts.

The arts bring us together and keep us inspired. We believe in the value the arts bring to our students’ lives and our community. You are important to us, and we look forward to connecting with you soon.

Modeled after the Tony Awards, the Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts Applause Awards celebrates high school teachers and students involved in musical theater. This event features outstanding performances from participating schools. It showcases the enthusiasm, dedication and talent of high school musical theater programs, and encourages schools to grow and continue improving their programs.

To participate, schools register to have their musical theater production reviewed by a qualified team of adjudicators who provide valuable feedback. During the spring of each adjudication period, Dr. Phillips Center hosts an awards showcase to recognize the incredible achievements of local high school musical theater productions, students and educators
