Iowa High School Musical Theater Awards

Presented by EMC Insurance Companies

The Iowa High School Musical Theater Awards celebrates the achievements of students involved in high school musicals across the state. 

 

ABOUT THE PROGRAM

The year-long program consists of three main components.

Learning Opportunities
Throughout the school year, workshops led by theater professionals help students grow. While some sessions focus on performance skills, others focus on technical areas such as lighting design, scenic design, and stage management. Many opportunities connect students directly with Broadway professionals. For example, Tony Award-winning actress Sutton Foster led a vocal audition master class.

Professional Review
Participating musical productions receive a professional review. A panel of performing arts educators and professionals (adjudicators) attend each school's musical and provides feedback on everything from individual actors' performances, to the orchestra, set, lighting, costumes and more. Teachers and students use these insights to make their next show even stronger. Schools participating year over year have seen dramatic transformations in skill, student enthusiasm, and community support.

Awards Showcase & Recognitions
The year culminates in a professionally produced Awards Showcase celebrating student achievement at the Des Moines Civic Center.
