School Awards

Rainbow Stage annually awards middle years and high schools in Manitoba for excellence in the production of musical theatre. A Rainbow Stage Education and Outreach Committee compromised of dedicated board members and volunteers with a wealth of experience in education, music and theatre visits applying schools to witness and assess their musical productions. Winners are then selected, notified and invited to Rainbow Stage to participate in an opening night ceremony where they receive their School Performance Award certificate and cash award. – Judy Giesbrecht, 2017-18 Education & Outreach Committee Chairperson
