Broadway In Chicago is thrilled to invite high schools across the state of Illinois to participate in the Illinois High School Musical Theatre Awards.

IHSMTA categories include Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Scenic Design of a Musical, Best Direction of a Musical, and Best Overall Production.

The Illinois High School Musical Theatre Awards selects twenty-four nominees (12 actors & 12 actresses) to compete for top honors in front of Chicago casting agents and theater professionals. Nominees will perform on stage at the Broadway Playhouse and receive tickets to a Broadway In Chicago show.

From the twenty-four nominees, the Best Actor and Best Actress award recipients will receive an all-expense paid trip to New York City to participate in a performance enrichment program and represent the state of Illinois at the National High School Musical Theatre Awards, on Broadway.
