The National High School Musical Theatre Awards® (the Jimmy Awards®) are a national celebration of outstanding student achievement, recognizing individual artistry in vocal, dance, and acting performance and elevating the importance of theatre arts education in schools. The Jimmy Awards® are presented by The Broadway League Foundation.

About The Jimmy Awards®

The Jimmy Awards® were established in 2009 to elevate the importance of theatre arts education in schools and reward excellence in student performance. The program impacts more than 100,000 students annually who participate in high school musical theatre competitions sponsored by presenters of touring Broadway productions throughout the United States. Each year, regional programs nominate outstanding student performers to participate in the national competition.

CAPA Marquee Awards’ Winners Go to the Jimmy Awards ®

Each year, two outstanding student performers (one lead actor and one lead actress) will be nominated to represent the CAPA Marquee Awards at The Jimmy Awards® in New York City. The two student nominees from Central Ohio join top musical theatre students from across the country for a week-long theatre intensive in New York City where they experience private coaching, master classes and rehearsals in preparation for a special showcase performance at a Broadway theatre.
