The Musical Theater Division is pleased to announce our component of the “METG Strong” program titled “Marquee Strong - Students of MA Celebrating their Commitment and Love of Musical Theater”. Our hope is to provide a platform that celebrates the work of our students and teachers, with no emphasis on winners and losers. The Marquee Awards is not providing this as a forum to supplant our evaluative/competitive programming.

If you would like your students to participate by sending a video submission, please read below a few key details about the program:

  1. Students whose school submitted an application to participate in the 2019-2020 Marquee Awards are eligible (whether you were adjudicated or not).
  2. Students and/or Directors must fill out the submission form. Please note that information confirming permission will be shared at a later date. Videos will not be shared unless a permission form is completed for each student participating in the video.
  3. Students/Ensembles will upload a 1-2 minute (average 32 bars) long performance video (song, dance, song & dance) in the role you played or were scheduled to play.
  4. Videos can be filmed on your phone and may be performed acapella, or to accompaniment.
  5. Please be sure to include at the start of the video your name, school and the role/show you are performing your number from.
  6. Students will upload their video to Google Drive or a Dropbox account and share the file with Keith McCarthy at kmccarthy@metg.org.
  7. Individual directors will review/approve all videos submitted on behalf of their school to the Marquee Awards.
  8. Each school will be represented in the final video.
  9. We reserve the right to limit five submissions per school and edit the videos for length if needed.
  10. Submission deadline is May 20, 2020.
  11. Videos will be shared on the METG social media platforms during the week of June 8 -June 12.

Please let us know if you have any questions.

Thank you!
