In the Fall of 2015, The Fabulous Fox Theatre, The Muny and the Fox Performing Arts Charitable Foundation announced a joint sponsorship of the first annual St. Louis High School Musical Theatre Awards. The National High School Musical Theatre Awards impacts more than 50,000 students annually who participate in regional high school musical theatre competitions sponsored by top professional theatres throughout the United States. A Best Actress and Best Actor winner from each of these regional competitions is sent to New York for a week-long theatre intensive of coaching and rehearsals with industry professionals in preparation for a one-night-only showcase on Broadway. At that time a panel of judges crowns the nation's top performers. Also known as The Jimmy Awards, named for Broadway impresario James M. Nederlander, the program has been the catalyst for more than $1 million in educational scholarships. Presented by The Broadway League Foundation. For more information, please visit JimmyAwards.com.
