On Tuesday night it was a different kind of awards show: The Greater Austin High School Musical Theater Awards. The show included a medley of local musical productions.

“Once again, the Austin arts community came together to recognize the sheer talent and passion of our students. It was truly a night that will be remembered and relived by all involved for years to come,” said Jamie Grant, president and CEO of the Long Center.
