Nashville High School Musical Theatre Awards

As part of the Nashville High School Musical Theatre Awards, area high schools submit one musical per school year, which will then by judged by a local area professional, a Lipscomb University faculty member, and a student from Lipscomb's Department of Theatre. At the end of the year, all participating area schools are invited for a day of awards and rotating workshops taught by industry professionals.

After the workshops, there will be an awards ceremony hosted by Chuck Wagner. We will recognize exemplary work of all the participating schools, and the Department of Theatre at Lipscomb will be giving out two $1,000 scholarships to study theater at Lipscomb University.

We are proud to have Chuck Wagner, native to the Nashville are, bring his considerable experience from both the stage and screen to high school students on this weekend. He is known for his work on Broadway for Beauty and the Beast and originating the role of the Wolf/Prince in Stephen Sondheim's Into the Woods. An avid musical theatre historian, Wagner served as visiting artist-in-residence at the University of West Florida in Pensacola. He performs concerts and teaches in high schools and colleges throughout the United States.
