 Broadway in Tucson and Arts Express are excited to announce that Tony Award-winner Ben Vereen will host the Southwest Regional "Ben Vereen" Awards on Sunday, May 24 at the Stevie Eller Dance Theatre.   Local KOLD-CBS news personality Joan Lee will be co-hosting.  This event is part of the National High School Musical Theatre Awards held in New York City on June 29, 2015.

Prior to the regional finals, a Tucson Sing-Off will be held to award Best Actor and Best Actress as well as to identify the 10 finalists who will participate in the regionals.  In addition, trophies will be presented for Best Musical, Best Director and Best Creative Elements.  The Tucson Sing Off "Ben Vereen" Awards will be held on Sunday, May 3 at the historic Fox Tucson Theatre at 6:30pm.
