The Applause Awards program supports participating high schools by providing high quality learning, performing and creative experiences for students. Schools register to have their musical theater production reviewed by a qualified team of adjudicators who provide directors with valuable feedback. During the spring of each review period the Dr. Phillips Center hosts an awards showcase to recognize the outstanding achievements of high school musical theater productions and students. Modeled after the Tony Awards®, the showcase features outstanding performances from participating high schools. The event demonstrates the enthusiasm, dedication and talent of high school musical theater programs and encourages participating schools to grow and continue improving their programs.
The Applause Awards provides participants with a number of learning opportunities throughout the year, including master classes led by touring Broadway artists, Broadway Speakers Bureau opportunities, student ticket packages for touring Broadway performances, awards for artistic excellence in performance and technical theater/design, feedback from industry professionals, classes, performance training workshops, and much more.
