3rd Annual High School Drama Awards

Presented by Prime Stage Theatre on April 24, 2023

We are thrilled to announce the 3rd Annual Prime Stage High School Drama Awards for schools in Southwestern PA. Please consider donating to this important program - Donate Today!

If you would like more information about the Drama Awards for next year, please complete the 4th 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.

On April 24, 2023, the awards ceremony will be presented at the New Hazlett Theater Center for the Performing Arts. See below for a listing of 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.
