Theatre Under The Stars has announced 45 Houston-area high schools will compete in the Ninth Annual Tommy Tune Awards, named of course for the lanky, Houston-native Broadway legend.

From the announcement:

"Developed by TUTS in 2002, the awards reward musical theatre excellence at the high school level, celebrating outstanding student achievement in 15 categories. During the 2010-2011 school year, a team of Houston-based theatre professionals will evaluate the participating high school productions and announce the winners at a Tony Awards-style ceremony to be held April 20, 2011 at the Hobby Center for the Performing Arts. The event will feature spotlight numbers from the nominated shows, as well as award presentations to the performers, directors, choreographers, orchestras and designers, who have defined excellence throughout 2010 - 2011. The Best Leading Actor and Actress will go on to compete in the National High School Musical Theatre Awards in New York City this coming June."

"A team of Houston-based theatre professionals." Seriously? We really want to know who's signing up for that gig. That's a Herculean task of endurance. Parents everywhere salute you.

The most popular shows in the high schools this go-round? The Wiz wins with four productions; followed by Guys and Dolls with three; and The Music Man, Joseph and The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, and Into the Woods with two each.
