St. Louis High School Musical Theatre Awards
The St. Louis High School Musical Theatre Awards (SLHSMTA) is produced by The Fabulous Fox, The Muny, and The Fox Performing Arts Charitable Foundation. This program is designed to celebrate outstanding achievement in high school musical theatre. Participating schools will have their productions reviewed and evaluated by a panel of theatre professionals.
The year-long judging process culminates in an awards ceremony modeled on the Tony awards. The winners of the Outstanding Actress and Outstanding Actor categories will travel to New York (all expenses paid) to compete in the National High School Musical Theatre Awards program (The Jimmy Awards®) and to participate in a week-long professional development experience.

Rules & Regulations
Different teams of judges attend each production, meaning that each school is evaluated independently of other school productions. After the awards ceremony, each school will receive a written analysis from the judges who saw the production. This feedback is meant to help the school realize its full potential based on its resources. It may be shared with the students or not at the discretion of the director.
