The High School Musical Theater Awards (HSMTA) were created to recognize and support excellence in high school musical theater in North Texas. Students and educators are recognized with an annual awards ceremony modeled after the Tony Awards® and include both performance and production categories.

Each year, Broadway Dallas raises funds from the community to support the High School Musical Theatre Awards program and awards ceremony and to distribute more than $60,000 in scholarships to deserving students. Broadway Dallas would like to thank Paddy and Barry Epstein, Lynne and Bob Thompson, Joshua Curlett and SoundPro, and Lance and Esther Bozman for their leadership gifts, and ask you to please consider joining them by giving a gift today!
