If you want proof that the Tampa Bay area high school theatre departments not only can go neck and neck with other theatre departments anywhere, but actually surpass them, then make sure to attend the next Broadway Star of the Future showcase. Some of the best talent you will ever experience is on display. This year, 43 high school productions (36 of which were musicals) and 700 participants from 31 schools from as far south as Naples and as far north as New Port Richey had been adjudicated beforehand. And two young performers would be chosen to represent the area by going to New York City later this summer and vie for the prestigious Jimmy Awards, but more about that later.

Loving and Prasatthong-osoth will perform in the 11th annual Jimmy Awards ceremony, which will be streamed live in its entirety and is brought to you by The Broadway League Foundation and 2017 Tony Award winning Best Musical Dear Evan Hansen. Fans can watch the ceremony on The Jimmy Awards Facebook and YouTube pages. Apples and Oranges Arts is the livestream and video production partner. The official media partner is WABC-TV. The livestream will also include special content for those watching the ceremony online. (Source: www.tampabaynewswire.com)
