Lyric Stage presents

The Schmidt and Jones Awards

Established in 2010, and named after composer Harvey Schmidt and lyricist Tom Jones — with whom Lyric Stage has had a long, personal relationship — THE SCHMIDT AND JONES AWARDS honor excellence in high school musical theatre in Dallas-Fort Worth.

A panel of judges, consisting of theatre educators and professional theatre artists, view the productions of the accepted applicants from schools in Dallas, Tarrant and Collin counties. The panel makes nominations and then votes to determine winners in various performance and design categories. Only students are eligible for awards. The directors of participating schools also receive written production evaluations.

The judging panel, adjudicating, and awards are organized and led by the Director of the Schmidt And Jones Awards, Amy Stevenson, who is well-known in Dallas-Forth Worth as both an artist and educator. At the end of the year, Lyric Stage produces an awards ceremony at the historic Majestic Theatre, which features performances by nominated schools, productions, and performers, as well as local, and professional theatre artists.
