June 4, 2018 Des Moines Civic Center

Feel the energy of hundreds of amazing student performers representing 68 participating Iowa high schools, as they share highlights from their award-winning school musicals!

This unforgettable evening of entertainment is a celebration of the important contributions of Iowa’s high school drama programs. Throughout the year, theater professionals traveled across the state to review high school musical productions. Now, students from those schools will come together to share highlights from their productions on the Civic Center stage and to receive honors for their work in performance, technical and creative categories. In addition, students will work under the direction of a guest Broadway music director and choreographer to give the best performances of their young lives. You’ll even see dreams come true when two students learn they will represent Iowa at the National High School Musical Theatre Awards in New York City this summer.

This is a not-to-be-missed evening for anyone who loves musicals and believes in the power of the arts to impact young people.

2017-2018 Awards & Recognition coming soon!
