Theatre Challenge: 4/9 musicals —->
On Monday night, the 6th Annual Jimmy Awards - aka the National High School Musical Theater Awards (NHSMTA) - were held at the Minskoff Theatre. This annual event features students from around the country, and the week before the awards they have the opportunity to work with professional theatre performers.
Julia Murney was part of this year’s group, along with Andrea Burns, Adam Kantor, Renee Elise Goldsberry and Krystal Joy Brown. The photos above are from the coaching period and the event itself.
Regarding the awards, Julia said (quotes via Michael Gioia’s article about the show on Playbill.com):
I said to them, ‘I know this is a ‘competition,’ but now let’s throw that out because it’s not. I know extraordinary people who’ve never been nominated for a Tony, let alone won one. [I told] them, ‘I’m proud of you, regardless. I want to buy you all a milkshake no matter what happens… Just find your joy in what you’re doing, and let’s just do it.’ And, I do think they all bond very quickly because they’re with these people who they know — they don’t know, but they know, in their soul.
…It’s such a riot to see, and it’s so exciting, and they’re all so in it. It’s really thrilling. Even the ones that I coached, each one of them would do their little medley thing, and you feel like you’re somehow responsible for them, which I’m not at all. I had them for two days, but I just have a heart for them.
Awards were won by Jonah Rawitz and Jai’Len Josey. Miss Josey’s competition solo performance was Raise the Roof. About this she said:
That’s a big song. Singing [Julia Murney’s] song, it gives me a drive. She’s done it, so I had her to look up to. It’s an honor to do her song.
Our congratulations to all of the students involved in this very cool event.
