Last night, viewers stepped behind the footlights of the Broadway stage to see the process, passion and perseverance behind the nationwide National High School Musical Theater Awards on the premiere episode of Broadway or Bust. Among the 60 young performers vying for honors after a grueling performance bootcamp and trying coaching sessions were two representatives from Wisconsin. Sheridan Hearn from Edgewood High School and Sam Burns from Beloit Turner High School were both award-winners at this year’s Tommy Awards in Madison and gained the chance to head off to the Great White Way, where PBS film crews were ready to document the entire process.
