Jimmy Awards

The Massachusetts Educational Theater Guild’s (METG) Marquee Musical Theater Awards promote the value of musical theater in schools, celebrate emerging talent on stage, and recognize the hard work and dedication of production designers, technicians, and producers that bring beautiful theater to life across the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

As part of our work recognizing emerging talent on stage, the METG is excited to participate in the National High School Musical Theater Awards ® (NHSMTA)—also known as the Jimmy Awards ®. The Jimmy Awards are a national celebration of outstanding student achievement, recognizing individual artistry in vocal, dance, and acting performance and elevating the importance of theater arts education in schools. The Jimmy Awards are presented by The Broadway League Foundation.

In Massachusetts, two high-school aged students (one best actor/actress) will represent the Commonwealth and go on an all-expense paid trip to New York City and participate in a week-long intensive experience, including coaching and rehearsals with industry professionals. The week culminates in a one-night-only showcase on Broadway, where a panel of judges crowns the nation’s top performers. The Jimmy Awards are named for legendary Broadway theater owner and producer James M. Nederlander. The METG is delighted to be sponsored by Broadway in Boston and to join the network of theaters across the country participating in The Jimmy Awards.
