Welcome to the Popejoy Awards!
Hosted by Popejoy Hall on the campus of The University of New Mexico, the Popejoy Awards celebrate and reward performances of Broadway musicals by high schools in New Mexico.
The Popejoy Awards are affiliated with the National High School Musical Theatre Awards. The national program elevates the importance of theatre arts education in schools and rewards excellence in student performance.
