Imagine Austin’s version of the Tony Awards. Every year, the Long Center brings together over 30 schools from our community to shine that spotlight on the hard work of thousands of students and teachers involved in arts education. Join us for a spectacular evening marking the sixth anniversary of this program where 30 area high schools and over 2000 participating students will gather for an evening of live performances, awards, scholarships, special guests, and more.
We’re thrilled to announce that this year will see the return of our host, Tyler Mount, Olivier Nominated and Tony Award-winning producer and Broadway’s most noted social influencer, with far-reaching work in the theatre community. A graduate of St. Edward’s University and alumnus of Summer Stock Austin, Mount spent many of his formative years active in Austin’s arts community.
Performances include fully executed numbers from the 8 schools nominated for Best Musical, lead actor and actress medleys showcasing the top 9 students in each category, a supporting actor and actress medley, an opening number performed by the Long Center Select Ensemble and introducing the individual nominees, a medley honoring movie musicals over the years performed by the Long Center Select Ensemble, and a finale like nothing you’ve ever seen where two students from each of the 30 participating schools come together in an exciting song and dance extravaganza to top off the evening.
In addition to beautiful glass trophies for awardees, schools share over $35,000 in college scholarships, school program grants, and training opportunities. Be sure to check out the full list of nominees on our social channels!
