Modeled after Broadway’s Tony Awards®, Starlight Theatre’s annual Blue Star Awards recognize achievement and excellence in musical theatre among Kansas City area high school students.
Established in 2003, the Blue Star Awards are one of the largest and most admired high school musical theatre awards programs in the nation. All high schools in metropolitan Kansas City and selected outlying communities are invited to participate. Each year the program serves 5,000 area students who contribute either on the stage or behind the scenes to their schools’ musical theatre productions.
The ceremony publicly recognizes the outstanding achievements of high school musical theatre students from high schools in Kansas Ci...ty and surrounding areas. Our very own Shayla Patrick — will be a guest presenter for the awards.
During the event, schools nominated for Outstanding Overall Production stage numbers from their schools’ musicals, and individuals nominated for Outstanding Lead Actor and Lead Actress honors perform musical medleys.
The ceremony begins at 7:30 p.m. and is free and open to the public. Parking is $5 per vehicle.
