Welcome To The Miami Valley High School Theatre Awards!

The MVHSTAs are back! I am excited for the Miami Valley High School Theatre Awards (MVHSTA) to make its triumphant return this year! Seeing high school students performing and working backstage all over the Miami Valley makes me very happy. All of us at Dayton Live look forward to celebrating with you as we lift the curtain on the 2021-2022 Season.
