The Jimmy Awards, celebrating high school musical-theater performers from around the country, has scheduled its 14th annual event for June 26, 2023.
The awards ceremony, slated to begin at 7:30 p.m., will again be held at the Minskoff Theatre on Broadway.
Students from across the United States will spend a week in New York City learning from Broadway professionals while preparing for the concluding ceremony. Two students will ultimately take home the awards for Best Performance by an Actor and Best Performance by an Actress.
The program encompasses more than 140,000 students who attend schools that participate in nearly 50 regional high musical theatre competitions.
The Jimmy Awards, named for the late theatrical producer James M. Nederlander, are presented by The Broadway League Foundation.
“More than 90 remarkable nominees will be selected from high school productions representing 140,000 participating students who will compete for the opportunity to perform on a Broadway stage and will be joining us in New York on June 26, 2023 for the 14th annual Jimmy Awards! Each year, these talented teens come to NYC to pursue their dreams and learn from some of the best professionals on Broadway,” said Charlotte St. Martin, president of The Broadway League. “Theater has an incredible way of bringing people together and the experience shared by the Jimmy Awards nominees is awe-inspiring.”
