Rita Moreno Awards
May 24, 2021
THE RITA MORENO CALIFORNIA HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL HONORS will be co-hosted for the eighth year by CMT San Jose and Broadway San Jose.
This awards competition recognizes outstanding achievement in high school musical theater north of Santa Barbara. The Outstanding Actor and Actress winners will be sent to the National High School Musical Theatre Awards (NHSMTA) – also known as the Jimmy™ Awards – in New York City, where they’ll perform before industry experts, and compete for scholarship opportunities. (www.jimmyawards.com). (note: the 2021 Jimmy Awards will be virtual).
For 2021 only, high school students will be considered for nomination in the following categories: Lead Actor, Lead Actress, and Outstanding Supporting Performer (with up to four possible winners). The Overall Production category will return in 2022.
This is a different season than normal, so we recommend you fully read the 2020-2021 Rules & Guidelines for all temporary adjustments and explanations. Feel free to send any questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We’re pleased to announce our first Town Hall on December 3rd. This is to help answer all questions and bring together our RMA community. Town Hall details will be sent to all registered participants.
We look forward to meeting California high schools’ brightest stars!
