Limelight was founded in 2015, before that, Studio 3 Performing Arts Academy, under the direction of Emma England, produced its own shows. Studio 3 now sponsors the non-profit Limelight Youth Theater.
Studio 3 received 7 NYA awards and 34 additional nominations! Every show this season received a nomination! We also had 2 wins and 2 nominations for Studio 3 students in other NYA-adjudicated productions.
We were also honored to receive 21 AriZoni nominations! Winners are announced at the ceremony in September. On top of our in-house nominations, several Studio 3 students also received nominations for their performances in Valley shows!
