Utah Festival Opera and Musical Theatre
Utah Festival Opera & Musical Theatre is proud to sponsor Utah High School Musical Theater Awards. This is a musical theatre scholarship program that rewards excellence at the high school level.
Representatives from UFOMT will travel across the state to adjudicate high school productions. Nominated schools and artists will perform and winners will be announced at the awards ceremony. The winner of Best Actor and Best Actress will be sent to NYC to participate in the National High School Musical Theater Awards where they will have the opportunity to participate in rehearsals and master classes; receive one-on-one coaching from theater professionals; be seen by casting agents; and meet and converse with Broadway actors.
These events culminate in a live awards show hosted by Broadway veterans and television personalities, featuring the presentation of the Jimmy™ Award for Best Performance by an Actress and Best Performance by an Actor.
