Celebrate Excellence in High School Theatre

San Jose Stage Company announces nominations for the 2011 Stage Top Honor Awards. Under the direction of Spencer Williams, this awards program encourages and rewards exceptional accomplishments in the production of high school musical theatre across the Bay Area.

Fifteen private and public high school musical theatre programs competed in the 2011 Stage Top Honor Awards, modeled after Broadway's Tony Awards featuring shows such as The Wedding Singer, Bye Bye Birdie, 42nd Street, and Little Women. The adjudicators (comprised of theatre professionals, performing artists, designers, and theatre arts educators) evaluated the musical theatre productions over the last four months and have made their nominations in seventeen different performance and production categories.

Recognition of outstanding achievement by students and educators will be made in the areas of performance (best lead and supporting actress/actor), design, direction, musical direction, choreography, technical production and overall production excellence.

The Best Actress and Actor will get an opportunity to attend the National Musical Theatre Awards (The Jimmy Awards) in New York City. Winners of The Jimmy Awards will be awarded scholarships to NYU's Tisch School for the Arts upon acceptance.

2011 Stage Top Honor Awards will be announced at the Gala Ceremony on June 6, at the California Theatre at 7 p.m.
