This year, over 300 students from our seven finalist schools joined us all day for workshops, rehearsals and the ceremony, and got to know their fellow musical theatre lovers. The first workshops began at 9:30 am. Students got to choose from eleven workshops all surrounding musical theatre. Workshops included acting, voice, dance, technical theatre, touring theatre, and more.
Check out all the workshops offered here!
In the afternoon, all the students gathered together at 710 Main Theatre to hear from a panel of professionals from local theatres, universities and non-profit organizations about the various career and educational options available to students in the performing arts. Each panelist discussed not only what their organization has to offer in terms of education programs and internships, but also imparted knowledge learned from their own personal experiences and gave advice to students who may want to pursue a career in the performing arts.

And then the moment these students have been waiting for since October when they found out they would be part of the program - the awards ceremony.
You can find the full list of award winners here.
Congratulations to all of our finalists on a job well done!
