Carroll Freedom Players

DayTony High School Program


The Carroll Freedom Players are proud to be a part of the high school DayTony program!

Mission: The DayTony High School Theatre Awards seeks to recognize achievement in theatrical arts in productions by participating Dayton area high schools as well as introduce high school students to the productions being done at other schools in the area.

Full membership list of schools: Carlisle, Carroll, Centerville, Chaminade-Julienne, Fairmont, Franklin, Miami Valley, Northmont, Springboro, Stebbins, Stivers, Tecumseh, Tippecanoe, and West Carrollton.

How the process works: Schools submit the attached registration form for their productions to be adjudicated. Registrations are due by Sept 1st. Each school will be responsible for finding student adjudicators for productions, which they are assigned to view. Each production will be viewed by five different schools and all five ballots are submitted to the DayTonys for tabulation. The DHSTA committee (comprised of representatives from the staff of each participating school) will meet in May to determine the ratings necessary in each category to be eligible for an award. This is a cutoff for scores to receive recognition – not a determination of who or what school is the best. Awards of excellence and merit in a variety of categories will be distributed at the annual Gala in June.
