Throughout the year, theater professionals review high school musical productions across the state as part of the Iowa High School Musical Theater Awards (IHSMTA), presented by EMC Insurance Companies. The program culminates with the IHSMTA Showcase held at the Des Moines Civic Center. Based on reviewer scores and nominations, outstanding musicals and performers are invited to share highlights from their productions. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this year student performances were recorded at the Des Moines Civic Center in June with safety protocols and no live audience. Supporters are invited to view the performances during a special Iowa PBS broadcast on Friday, July 9 at 8:30 p.m.

Additional honors and recognitions for all 78 schools in this year’s program will also be available in a special online gallery at DMPA.org that will launch on July 9, 2021 in tandem with the Iowa PBS broadcast.

IHSMTA SHOWCASE BROADCAST DETAILS
