    Feel the energy of hundreds of amazing student performers representing more than 80 participating Iowa high schools, as they share highlights from their award-winning school musicals!

    This unforgettable evening of entertainment is a celebration of the important contributions of Iowa’s high school drama programs. Throughout the year, theater professionals traveled across the state to review high school musical productions. Now, students from those schools will come together to share highlights from their productions on the Des Moines Civic Center stage and to receive honors for their work in performance, technical and creative categories. In addition, students will work under the direction of a guest music director and choreographer from New York City to give the best performances of their young lives.

    This is a not-to-be-missed evening for anyone who loves musicals and believes in the power of the arts to impact young people.
