What is the Shuler Student Ensemble?

The Shuler Student Ensemble is the heart of the Georgia High School Musical Theatre Awards - Shuler Hensley Awards. The Ensemble electrifies the Shuler Awards by opening and closing the event with exceptional talent, representing all of the participating school casts throughout the state. Ensemble members obtain professional training and feedback throughout the rehearsal and performance process, while meeting students from across the state who share a love for musical theater performance. The Ensemble reflects the very reason why high school musical theater and arts education programs must be celebrated and supported.
