Broadcast Dates Released - The 2016 Tommy Awards on Wisconsin Public Television
This is the fourth year the Tommy Awards – Overture’s high school musical theater awards program – has been included in Wisconsin Public Television’s Young Performer’s Initiative. The initiative is a statewide effort to raise the visibility of the arts, celebrate the creative talents of Wisconsin’s young people and support the arts in education. If you missed the Awards Show in June at Overture Center, you will have the opportunity to see highlights on Wisconsin Public Television later this month.
“This year’s broadcast features highlights of all 13 Outstanding Musicals, 27 Outstanding Lead Performers, and the two Jimmy Awards finalists.” said Deb Piper, producer for the program. “I can tell you, it’s tough to decide what to put in the show. And I think it was made harder this year by the caliber of the performances and the technical production of the show – everyone is stepping up their game! What an amazing production put on by the schools, the students and the Overture staff and tech crew!”
