Charline McCombs Empire Theatre, May 21, 2023 at 6PM

Get a front-row seat to the stars of tomorrow, and watch the best high school performers in the state grace the stage in a one-night Broadway-caliber showcase performance. 25 actors, dancers, and singers will be live-judged by a celebrity panel—all 25 will win scholarships, but only one will walk away with the top “Best Overall Performer” prize of $16,000 for the university of their choice. In partnership with Broadway League partner Ambassador Theatre Group, Las Casas will also select two students to represent the region at the National High School Musical Theatre Awards in New York City.

Named for late-founder Joci Straus, the catalyst for the restoration of the Majestic and Charline McCombs Empire Theatres and an ardent supporter of San Antonio’s young artists, the 15th Joci Awards is dedicated to her memory.
