Celebrating Excellence in High School Musical Theatre

Fashioned after Boadway's Tony Awards, the Georgia High School Musical Theatre Awards (GHSMTA) program celebrates excellence in high school musical theatre. The Awards are named in honor of actor/singer and Georgia native, Shuler Hensley, winner of the prestigious Tony Award, Outer Critics Circle Award and Drama Desk Award. The program embodies a spirit of camaraderie and celebration for the arts in high schools across Georgia. Atlanta's Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre provides a beautiful, state-of-the-art home for the GHSMTA. Our program is a part of the National High School Musical Theatre Awards - The Jimmy Awards® program of the Broadway League of New York City, NY. The televised show won the 2018, 2019, 2020 and 2021 Southeast Emmy® Awards for "Special Event Live Coverage."

The Georgia High School Musical Theatre Awards are made possible thanks to our partners at Fox Theatre Atlanta and Broadway Across America and the generous support of sponsors.
