Broadway Dallas has announced the 2024 nominees for the 13th Annual Broadway Dallas High School Musical Theatre Awards (HSMTA). The awards ceremony will take place live at the Music Hall at Fair Park on Friday, May 24, 2024. Tickets go on sale Wednesday, April 3 at 10 a.m..   

The Broadway Dallas High School Musical Theatre Awards aim to inspire and honor excellence in high school musical theater, and to recognize the importance of musical theater and arts education within the North Texas community. This regional program culminates at the Music Hall with an awards ceremony, modeled after the Tony Awards, to recognize outstanding musical theater productions and students.

“We can't wait to celebrate the talent and dedication of each and every school nominated this year,” says Ken Novice, President and CEO of Broadway Dallas. “We are so proud of all the HSMTA participants who work so hard and share the spirit of Broadway with their communities. Congratulations to all the spectacular nominees!”

A total of 79 productions from 73 participating high schools were evaluated by a diverse group of highly qualified judges from the North Texas theater community. Awards will be presented in 15 categories and scholarships are awarded to outstanding graduating seniors who are nominated by their teachers and selected by the Broadway Dallas scholarship panel. Through funds raised by private donations, Broadway Dallas HSMTA will award $65,000 in scholarships to continue to foster the great talent North Texas has to offer. To date, Broadway Dallas HSMTA College Scholarship program has awarded more than $500,000 in cash scholarships to deserving students.

The live ceremony will be hosted by Dallas native Miguel Cervantes, who is best known for his eight-year tenure in the title role of HAMILTON.

All nominees are listed at BroadwayDallas.org/HSMTA. Winners will be announced at the Broadway Dallas HSMTA ceremony on Friday, May 24 at the Music Hall at Fair Park. Tickets for the ceremony will go on sale Wednesday, April 3 at 10 a.m. at BroadwayDallas.org.
