SCHOOL ENTRIES AND STUDENT NOMINATIONS ARE NOW OPEN FOR THE 2024 BROADWAY SAN DIEGO AWARDS!
The 2024 competition features opportunities for aspiring musical theatre performers from all over San Diego County with two categories for high schools to enter:
The Jimmy Awards Category
For all high schools producing a full musical. Adjudicators will be sent to each production and score the students that are in the qualifying roles in approved musicals, in a full-length high school production (https://www.jimmyawards.com/participation/qualifying-shows-and-roles/) – determined by the Jimmy Awards. Musicals will need to be adjudicated by April 28, 2024. If your musical is after this deadline, please email Carlos Martinez at cmartinez@BroadwaySD.com. The entry fee for this category is $250 per production. SCHOLARSHIPS ARE AVAILABLE.
The Best Musical Category
Adjudication for best musical will be completed during the adjudication for the qualified roles for The Jimmy Awards Category. The top 3 schools will move on to compete at the 2024 Broadway San Diego Awards for the Best Musical Category. Nominees must present a fully staged ensemble production number from the show. It may be a single piece or a medley. Performance may be up to 3.5 minutes in length. Best musical presentations should be done in costume. They should be similar to the costumes from your original production.
The Broadway San Diego Awards are the San Diego chapter of the Jimmy Awards® (National High School Musical Theatre Awards®). In an effort to support the local arts community and aspiring musical theatre performers, The Broadway San Diego Awards have added the All-Star Chorus category for high schools that do not have a musical theatre program, or do not produce a full-length musical production. We encourage students, teachers and community leaders to share this opportunity with your schools.

WHAT IS THE BROADWAY SAN DIEGO AWARDS
The Broadway San Diego Awards is a local high school musical theatre competition that features two awards categories.
As the San Diego chapter of the Jimmy Awards® (National High School Musical Theatre Awards®), students that are cast in compliance with the Rules and Regulations of The Jimmy Awards for Best Actor and Best Actress, will be adjudicated in their high school production, and eligible to be nominated for The Jimmy Awards. The two finalists from the Jimmy Awards category at the Broadway San Diego Awards will join dozens of other finalists from regional competitions across the country for a weeklong experience called Camp Broadway, which includes rehearsals, workshops, lectures and field trips, designed to prepare the students for The Jimmy Awards®, which will be presented on Broadway at the Minskoff Theatre in June 2024.
