2018-06-25 CATEGORY: Education
In years past, one would have to travel to New York City’s Minskoff Theatre to see theatre’s brightest young stars showcase their talents at the annual Jimmy® Awards. But this year you can witness all the dazzling performances, award presentations and acceptance speeches in the comfort of your own home!
For the first time in its 10-year history, the Jimmy Awards will be livestreamed in its entirety on Facebook, tonight at 6:30 p.m. CT / 7:30 p.m. ET and you can watch the exciting evening right here on Starlight’s blog at the link below!
Hosted by Tony Award®-winning actress Laura Benanti, this year’s awards show will include a record number of 80 participants from 40 regional programs across the country, including Lauryn Hurley and Sam Aubuchon, winners of the Blue Star Awards for Outstanding Actress in a Lead Role and Outstanding Actor in a Lead Role, respectively. Student nominees will compete for the coveted Jimmy Award for Best Performance by an Actor and Best Performance by an Actress. The talent showcase will feature dynamic ensemble and solo performances plus appearances by current Broadway stars.
Tune in tonight to see Blue Star Award winners Lauryn Hurley and Sam Aubuchon as they represent Starlight Theatre and Kansas City at this year’s Jimmy Awards!
