Dazzle Awards presented by Pat and John Chapman

WATCH THE 2020 DAZZLE AWARDS VIRTUAL CHORUS

The Dazzle Awards presented by Pat and John Chapman inspire and honor excellence in high school musical theater, and recognize the importance of musical theater and arts education within the Northeast Ohio community. A curated panel adjudicates one performance at each participating school, and provides educational feedback and scores to determine nominees and awards in over 15 categories. This regional program culminates at the Connor Palace with the Dazzle Awards, modeled after the Tony Awards®, to recognize outstanding musical theater productions and students. The Best Actor and Best Actress winners will represent Playhouse Square and Northeast Ohio at The National High School Musical Theatre Awards® (the Jimmy Awards®) in New York City.
