The St. Louis High School Musical Theatre Awards (SLHSMTA) is sponsored by The Muny, The Fox Performing Arts Charitable Foundation, and Fox Associates.

This program is designed to celebrate outstanding achievement in high school musical theatre. Participating schools will have their productions evaluated by a panel of theatre professionals.

The year-long judging process culminates in an awards ceremony modeled on the Tony awards. The winners of the Best Actress and Best Actor categories will travel to New York (all expenses paid) to compete in the National High School Musical Theatre Awards program and to participate in a week-long professional development experience
