Winners Announced for The 5th Annual Dallas Summer Musicals High School Musical Theatre Awards

Students from a record-breaking number of participating schools gathered at the Music Hall at Fair Park on Thursday night for the highly-anticipated revealing of the 2016 Dallas Summer Musicals High School Musical Theatre Awards. Sixty-seven schools showcasing seventy shows represented a new all-time high of schools, teachers, and students taking part in the prestigious program based on Broadway's Tony Awards.


Emceed by the ever-entertaining Ron Corning of WFAA, the show featured impressive performances including separate medleys by the Best Actor and Best Actress nominees, production numbers from the Best Musical nominees, and an opening number featuring all nominated performers accompanied by a live orchestra. A large grand-finale number culminated with an explosion of glittering streamers which capped off an exciting evening of celebration during this fifth annual event.


So far, DSM has awarded over $100,000 in cash scholarships to outstanding students, and winners of the Best Performance by an Actor and Actress will receive an all-expense paid trip for five days to New York City to represent their school in the National High School Musical Theatre Awards (the Jimmy Awards).
