Broadway In Chicago has announced its new social-media program, "Around Broadway in 80 Days."

In the wake of the cancellation of The Jimmy Awards ( the national program ) and the Illinois High School Musical Theatre Awards ( IHSMTA, the regional program ), the initiative will celebrate and provide a virtual stage for all the participants who were unable to perform in the 2020 IHSMTA event. "Around Broadway" will kick off Thursday, March 26, with a message from the virtual emcee Miguel Cervantes ( of the musical Hamilton ). Cervantes' video is at www.youtube.com/watch .

The Illinois High School Musical Theatre Awards is one of the largest in the country, with nearly 80 schools participating and impacting more than 3,500 students in Illinois.

"Around Broadway" aims to give these young talented performers a virtual Broadway stage to perform on and an audience of Broadway notables. The program will feature videos of students on both Broadway In Chicago and IHSMTA's social media networks and will be tagged with #AroundBroadwayIn80Days.

See BroadwayInChicago.com for more information.
