The 5th Avenue Theatre spreads the joy of musicals to even the youngest members of our community—from kids in the far corners of our state to the teens right here in our own backyard. By growing a community of musical lovers who see and participate in performances early and often, we ensure a vibrant future for tomorrow’s audiences. That’s why we created The 5th Avenue Theatre Awards: Honoring High School Musicals
