Broadway Stars Celebrate #ApplaudMyTeacher
By Laura Kelly
Behind every great performance is inspiration, and behind that inspiration is a great teacher. Through the partnership with the Tony Awards and Carnegie Mellon University, the Excellence in Theatre Education Award was created to help recognize a K-12 theatre educator in the U.S. who embodies the highest standards of the profession and demonstrates a positive impact on the lives of students, advancement of the theatre profession and a commitment to excellence. This year's Tony nominees and other Broadway stars recognize some of their greatest teachers below. For more on CMU and the Tony Awards, check out Instagram, Twitter and Facebook.
