The Miami Valley High School Theatre Awards

Born from the strong foundation laid by the DayTony High School Theatre Awards, the Miami Valley High School Theatre Awards celebrate the accomplishments of area high school teachers and students by recognizing achievements in productions by participating Miami Valley area high schools. To participate, schools register to have their productions reviewed by a qualified team of adjudicators, who then provide directors with valuable feedback. During the spring, the Miami Valley High School Theatre Awards will present an awards showcase to recognize the outstanding achievements of high school productions and students. Modeled after the Tony Awards®, the showcase features outstanding performances from participating high schools and celebrates their enthusiasm, dedication, and talent while encouraging participating schools to grow and continue improving their programs.
