Carnegie Mellon University earns a special place in the world of theater.

CMU has been named the first, exclusive higher education partner for the Tony Awards.

Together, they will launch another first – a national program to honor theatre educators between kindergarten and high school.

CMU’s School of Drama is the oldest drama degree-granting program in the United States and is celebrating its 100th year.

It has produced hundreds of Tony nominees, and 31 winners, including eight across six categories last year alone.

Will CMU add to that list this year? We’ll get a better idea tomorrow.

The Tony Award nominations will be announced Tuesday morning at 8:30.

It will be broadcast online and you can watch it here:

The Tonys will be handed out on Sunday, June 8 and you can watch it live on KDKA-TV.
