Registration for Bobby G Awards consideration opens Aug. 19 for Colorado public and private high schools presenting a musical between Sept. 10, 2015 and April 24, 2016.

Last year, the Bobby G Awards expanded statewide and increased the number of eligibility slots to 30 Colorado high schools. This season, the number will be 35. 

The Bobby G Awards, Colorado’s awards program for The National High School Musical Theatre Awards, recognize outstanding achievements in all areas of musical production including design, music, performance, choreography and direction.

By participating in The Bobby G Awards, four trained adjudicators attend each musical. These adjudicators complete extensive evaluation forms offering detailed feedback on the comprehensive elements involved with staging a musical production.

The entire yearlong program culminates in an awards ceremony at The Buell Theatre on May 26, 2016, recognizing outstanding achievement in the evaluated areas. The celebration includes live performances from shows nominated for Outstanding Overall Production, and a medley performed by the 10 nominees for Outstanding Performance by an Actress and Actor in a Leading Role.

The students named Outstanding Actor and Actress in a Leading Role progress to represent Colorado in New York at The National High School Musical Theatre Awards.
