This ceremony will honor students in grades K-9 who participated in a production with NTPA – Plano during the 2019 calendar year.

Ticketing Update

If the ACT you need is sold out please purchase a party pass. On the day of the event, we will offer some upgrades for those with a party pass to be able to come to Rodenbaugh and fill any empty seats we have. Our priority will be to get all the nominees in the theatre and once they are all done we will offer them to friends and family.

Even if you don’t get upgraded don’t forget that both the Brody Copeland theatre and the Neiman Marcus adults-only room will have live video of the awards. Some parents even prefer to hang in one of these more casual spaces to watch the awards. Neiman Marcus will also have wine by donation and snacks for the adults to enjoy.

If you want to be on the waiting list for an upgrade, after you purchase your party day pass please email
