Spotlight Awards are presented in partnership with Lipscomb University’s College of Entertainment and the Arts to encourage young theatre artists in Middle Tennessee. Through the program, high school musicals are evaluated by a diverse panel of adjudicators. In May, the program culminates with workshops taught by industry professionals on the Lipscomb campus. That evening, exemplary work is recognized with The Spotlight Awards ceremony at TPAC, where the top 10 contenders for “Outstanding Musical" perform and honors are presented in a variety of categories, including “Outstanding Lead Actor” and “Outstanding Lead Actress.” The winners in those two categories then move on to national consideration for The Jimmy Awards in New York.

TPAC's updated Patron Entry Policy strongly recommends all patrons 2+ years of age to wear a mask while in the theater and public spaces. For more details and TPAC's updated health and safety protocols, visit TPAC.ORG/PatronHealth.
