Omaha Performing Arts’ 2015-2016 Nebraska High School Theatre Awards program is in its third year and it’s bigger than ever!
Omaha Performing Arts expanded the program to serve as many as 50 high schools located within 150 miles of the Holland Performing Arts Center. To reach even more students, a series of in-school workshops with Broadway actor Kevyn Morrow were held earlier this fall in high schools across the state, including Norfolk, Columbus, Central Cities and other Greater Nebraska communities.
“The Nebraska High School Theatre Awards has become one of Omaha Performing Arts largest and fastest growing musical theatre education programs,” says Omaha Performing Arts Education Manager, Kathleen Lawler Hustead. “We look forward to expanding the program to serve high schools throughout Nebraska in the next few years.”
Culminating in an annual Tony Awards®-inspired showcase, the Nebraska High School Theatre Awards offers participating high schools feedback on their musical theatre productions from a qualified team of adjudicators, master classes led by Broadway teaching artists, tickets to Broadway touring shows when available, distance learning opportunities, performance and audition experiences, awards and more.
To participate, schools should register online by November 24, 2015. Visit NebraskaHSTA.org to register for the program or to learn more.
