Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world. – Nelson Mandela
The Roger Rees Awards is a celebration of self-discovery, high hopes and big dreams. It’s also a recognition of the hard work and commitment that hundreds of students, educators, and their communities put into achieving a common goal – presenting their high school musical. But art is more than a presentation. It is a lesson in empathy.
The Roger Rees Awards is dedicated to honoring every voice, especially those who feel voiceless, allowing students to express themselves and celebrating that expression. We stand with the Black community. We stand with our Black students past, present, and future. We stand with our Black educators. We stand with their families. Black Lives Matter.
With lives up-ended and our cities in strife, our presentation is an opportunity to applaud the harmony and fellowship that high school theatre students throughout the Greater New York area have created to end their academic year on a high note, put joy in the world, and create a vision for a world of equality.
