Named after Fort Worth’s own Tony Award-winning Best Actress and Fort Worth ISD and Casa Mañana alumna Betty Lynn Buckley, this program promotes and celebrates excellence in high school musical theater. The awards are open to high school students in Denton, Wise, Parker, Hood, Johnson and Tarrant counties. A panel of distinguished judges, comprising local theater professionals and educators, vote for a winner in each of 13 categories for musicals and three categories for plays. Awards include a $1,000 scholarship, which are provided by generous donors who recognize the benefits of the program and the impact musical theatre has on the lives of students.
Winners will be announced at a Tony Awards-style ceremony on Thursday, May 25, at Casa Mañana Theatre.
Information about how to purchase tickets and all Buckley Award nominees will be available soon on the Casa Mañana website.
