The 2018 National High School Musical Theatre Awards, known more commonly as the Jimmy Awards, take place June 25 at Broadway's Minskoff Theatre. Tony winner Laura Benanti hosts the tenth annual ceremony, which will see 80 high school students compete for scholarships after having already won regional competitions for their performances in school productions.
The finalists participated in a professional training intensive at NYU Tisch School of the Arts and received mentorship from a variety of industry professionals. Their preparation culminates in the final show, during which the students will showcase the roles that earned them acclaim in group and solo performances.
As previously announced, this year’s Jimmy Awards, named in honor of the late theatre owner and producer James M. Nederlander, will be live streamed in its entirety on Facebook with support from Dear Evan Hansen and Wells Fargo.
