Tony Award® nominee Christopher Sieber will be hosting the evening and is currently appearing in the new hit Broadway musical The Prom.Joe Iconis (Be More Chill), Lisa Brescia (Dear Evan Hansen), Isabelle McCalla (The Prom), Tony Award winner Tonya Pinkins (original star of Caroline, Or Change), Tony nominee Lauren Ridloff (Children of a Lesser God), and Christina Soujous (Jesus Christ Superstar Live!) will be the onstage presenters.

Tonya Pinkins had every right to be bursting with pride when she talked about Professional Performing Arts High School production of Caroline, or Change. This phenomenal cast of Savannah-Lee Henry as Caroline, Myer Patterson, Madalynn Mathews, Anya Jimenez, Erica Simone Barnett, Dwany Guzman, Oliver Stern, Noah Gellman, Elizabeth Kenny, Andre Gulick, Oona Higgins, Christian Dell’Edera, Kimiko Jackson, Eden Rolle, Mark Aguirre, Leonay Shepherd, Hayes Philip, Manuel Hodgson and Julien Tornelli was each better than the next. Kudos to director Kyle Pleasant and musical director Brett Kristofferson. Well done!!!!
