About the Senior Division AMP Awards

The 2021 Senior Division AMP Awards offers a separate and exclusive “Senior Division” Awards Ceremony in a cross-NTPA event. The event will honor students who just completed 10th, 11th, 12th grades or homeschool age-equivalents and those who graduated in May 2020. This exciting event unites the Senior Division from across the entire NTPA family of theatres and will be the exclusive event for Senior Division AMP recognition!  There will not be Senior Division recognition at the traditional Plano, Fairview, Frisco or Dallas AMP Awards Ceremonies.

The Red Carpet Reception opens at 4:30 PM and Seniors can party ’til midnight! This year “Hear the People Sing” is our theme for our Senior Division AMP Awards! We celebrate the 30th Anniversary of NTPA with EVERY performer who has EVER been a part of any Les Miserables Cast throughout NTPA history… invited to raise our voices together in “One Day More.”

All money raised by the AMP Awards supports the Covid Recovery funds for North Texas Performing Arts. Your attendance will not only help us celebrate our family of performers, but will allow us to continue growing our program in 2021 and the years to come!

Hart Award Application

The Hart Award recognizes a graduating NTPA senior who has demonstrated distinguished leadership at NTPA, school and in the community.

The award is named after Rebekah Hart and her family. Rebekah Hart was a student at Plano Children’s Theatre from 2001-2008. In addition to taking classes, she volunteered at PCT and Custer Road Methodist Church. Her parents were active volunteers in our program. In addition, they were Girl Scout volunteers and foster parents. Sadly, we lost the Hart family in 2008 in a tragic accident. The following year we created the Hart Award for graduating seniors who exemplify the Ten Characters of NTPA.

Graduating seniors are invited to apply for the HART AWARD. Our Arts Advisory Board will read the nominations and decide on the winners.

Applications are due by Monday, July 5.
