Celebrating Excellence in High School Musical Theatre

Fashioned after Broadway’s Tony Awards, the Georgia High School Musical Theatre Awards – Shuler Hensley Awards celebrate excellence in high school musical theater. 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 Shuler Awards. The Shulers are a part of the National High School Musical Theatre Awards – The Jimmy Nederlander Awards. And we are proud to announce that the 2017 production won the 2018 Southeast Emmy® Award for "Special Event Live Coverage."

The Shuler Awards made possible thanks to our partners at Fox Theatre and Broadway Across America, and the generous support of sponsors.
