Josh Strobl Wins National High School Musical Theater Award!

Anyone who has seen (or heard) Josh Strobl over his 4 years at John Burroughs High School, knows he is destined for success on the Broadway stage. But did you know he has already attained it?

At the Minskoff Theater on Broadway late last month, Josh was honored with the Jimmy Award for Best Performance by an Actor!

Josh competed against 30 other actors who had, like him, won Best Actor at their regional contests. Josh won Best Actor at the Jerry Herman Awards held at the Pantages Theater in Los Angeles earlier in the summer.

From the LA Times:

Strobl's award comes with a $10,000 scholarship, but it was his experience of walking backstage at the Minskoff Theatre and performing in front of an audience full of Tony Award winners and industry giants, including Andrew Lloyd Weber, that made for a "life-changing" night, he said.

We know you join us in congratulating Josh on his success! We all look forward to hearing much more from Josh in his career!
