The National High School Musical Theatre Awards
The 2017 San Diego Ben Vereen Awards Champions
The 2017 San Diego Ben Vereen Awards champions (one male and one female), will compete at the National High School Musical Theatre Award in New York City in June. The San Diego winners will join dozens of other finalists from regional competitions across the country for a week long experience called Camp Broadway, which includes rehearsals, workshops and lectures and field trips, designed to prepare the students for the National High School Musical Theatre Awards (NHSMTA)/Jimmy™ Awards, which will take place on Monday, June 27, 2017 at the Minskoff Theatre on Broadway. The Broadway League will now be overseeing the centralized operations of this program.
The San Diego Ben Vereen Awards, through the generous support of our sponsors, will provide the San Diego champions with transportation, room and board for Camp Broadway and the National High School Musical Theatre Awards. Participants will be chaperoned at all times. The competition is unable to provide transportation, room and board, and tickets to the competition for parents, guardians and teachers. However, complete itinerary information for the contestants will be provided well in advance, so that others may purchase their own travel, accommodation and ticket arrangements.
Contestants are not allowed to leave the camp at any time except during official camp activities under the supervision of camp staff and chaperones. Contestants are not allowed to have visitors while at camp.
Friends and Family
Friends and family are encouraged to make their own travel and accommodation arrangements so that they can attend the National High School Musical Theatre Awards Competition and the Cast Party to follow (additional fee).
The winners of the National High School Musical Theatre Awards (one male and one female), will each receive a $10,000 prize towards a college scholarship.
