Jerry Awards & Ensemble

Overture Center’s Jerry Awards

2018 Jerry Awards recipients have been announced! Congratulations to all the nominees and recipients in the North Central Region and across the state. View the full list of recipients here: 2018 Jerry Award Recipients

The Grand is thrilled to collaborate with the Overture Center to bring the Jerry Awards to North Central Wisconsin. The Jerry Awards encourage, recognize and honor excellence in high school musical theater. Educators, and industry professionals review productions at more than 70 high schools in 23 counties and provide valuable feedback.

School and student achievements are honored and featured in an awards show held in Madison at the Overture Center in June, and two outstanding performers advance to The National High School Musical Theater Awards competition in New York City.

Students at participating high schools can participate in the Jerry Performance Ensemble, become a Student Critic and attend workshops with Broadway tour performers. Check out the Student Participation Guide for more information.
