And The 5th Avenue Theatre Award goes to…

One comment

The 5th Avenue Theatre Awards kicked off tonight with over 200 kids lifting their voices to the rafters together as they welcomed their peers to a night of celebration!

For the 2018/19 high school musical theater season, The 5th had a record-setting 128 productions at 106 schools participating this year. 167 nominations and 178 honorable mentions were given in various categories. The 21 categories include awards for “Outstanding Actor” and “Outstanding Actress” and a variety of creative, design and offstage awards. This year, 30 special honors awards will be given for extraordinary student achievements and schools whose productions create an educational impact beyond the stage.

We are so proud of the incredible work we saw all over Washington State and continue to be blown away by the phenomenal level of talent right her in our own backyard!

You’ve been so patient…  And now, the time is here!

The 5th Avenue Theatre would also like to thank Alaska Airlines, whose support makes it possible to send the recipients of the “Outstanding Actor” and “Outstanding Actress” awards to New York to participate in the National High School Musical Theater Awards. Alaska Airlines, together with its regional partners, flies 44 million customers a year to 115 destinations with an average of 1,200 daily flights across the United States and to Mexico, Canada, and Costa Rica.
