SEATTLE – Arlington High School’s production of “Peter Pan” has been nominated for three awards in the seventh annual 5th Avenue High School Musical Theatre Awards.
The production directed by Scott Moberly is nominated for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble Group for a song featuring Tiger and Lily, and for make-up. The Peter Pan production also received Honorable Mention for its lobby display.
Nominations were made in 21 categories, from overall musical production to lobby display in the state-wide program sponsored by Wells Fargo.
The 5th Avenue sent a team of theater professionals to evaluate each school’s production during the past school year, according to the theater’s public relations manager, John Longenbaugh.
Designed to shine the spotlight on high school musical theater programs and offer drama students the same recognition that accomplished high school athletes have received for decades, the high school version of the Tony Awards allows drama students from across Washington to meet, celebrate and honor the exceptional musical theater productions presented during the 2008-2009 school year.
The 5th Avenue Awards will be presented starting at 7 p.m., Monday, June 8 at The 5th Avenue Theatre in Seattle.
Nominated students and schools will perform numbers from their shows and get a taste of what it’s like to perform in front of a packed house. Dozens of high-profile elected officials and arts and media personalities will present awards and show their support for school arts programs. An estimated 2,200 high school students are expected to attend, along with their families and friends. Tickets are available by contacting the drama departments of the nominated schools.
Tickets for the Awards Ceremony are $27.50 for adults and $16.50 for students, and are available through participating schools.
