The Dallas Summer Musicals High School Musical Theatre Awards aim to inspire and honor excellence in high school musical theater, and to recognize the importance of musical theater and arts education within the North Texas community. This regional program culminates at the Music Hall with an awards ceremony, modeled after the Tony Awards®, to recognize outstanding musical theater productions and students.
Each year, DSM raises funds from the community and distributes $55,000 in scholarships to deserving HSMTA students during the annual awards ceremony. DSM would like to thank Paddy and Barry Epstein and Lynne and Bob Thompson for their longstanding commitment to this program. This year, we would also like to extend our heartfelt gratitude to Dawn and Eric Dortch for their fundraising efforts and to all who joined them in contributing to HSMTA this year.
