Announcing Center Stage High School Musical Theater Awards

 

The Center Stage High School Musical Theater Awards is an education initiative that celebrates and supports the achievements of high school theater programs in Northeastern Wisconsin. Theater experts will serve as a team of adjudicators to provide feedback and determine awards for participating schools based on extraordinary achievements and processes of developing young artists, onstage and offstage. The program culminates with an annual awards showcase (modeled after the Tony Awards®) to recognize outstanding student performances.

    Even though we are outside of the 45 mile limit Antigo High School would very much like the chance to participate in any learning opportunities that you might offer.
