We are thrilled to announce the 3rd Annual Prime Stage High School Drama Awards.

If you would like more information about the Drama Awards please complete the 3rd Annual High School Drama Awards Interest Form.


These awards are designed to reward excellence in high-school drama for non-musical productions: one act or full length. We will accept up to 10 participating schools on a first come, first served basis. The production must be completely student run, and each student must be directly responsible for that department’s activities. Because all positions involved in producing a stage production are important, our award categories include both backstage and onstage roles. Beginning in 2023, the awards ceremony will be presented in the spring at the New Hazlett Center for the Performing Arts.. See below for a listing of included categories.

We hope that you will join us in bringing recognition to the students who work so hard to bring drama to their audiences. By doing so, you will also be helping to keep drama alive in our schools and on our stages.

There are 15 award categories:

Best Actor Best Student Prop Design
Best Actress Best Student Costume Design
Best Supporting Actor Best Student Makeup Design
Best Supporting Actress Best Student Use of Creative Technical Effects
Best Student Director Best Student Sound Design
Best Student Stage Manager Best Crew
Best Student Scenic Design Best Overall Production
Best Student Lighting Design

Congratulations to All!
