Monte Awards – High School Production Calendar


Arts Express is the producing partner with Broadway in Tucson for The Monte Awards, the Southern Arizona division of The National High School Musical Theater Awards, a national celebration of outstanding achievement in high school musical theater that recognizes student artistry in vocal, dance and acting performance, and honors teachers and their schools’ commitment to performing arts education.

Research proves that arts education enhances student achievement, increases self-esteem and actively engages students; connecting them with school, their community and life. The arts keep kids in school, improve standardized test scores and provide a strong link for pursuit of a college degree.

As high schools register their musicals for the Monte Awards, we will post it here along with ticket information.  By becoming a patron of high school musical theatre, you're helping to build a better community through the arts!

Please join us in supporting the performing arts in our area high schools!
