The 5th Avenue Musical Theater Awards is a fantastic program, entirely unique in this country—a program designed to recognize high school musical theater all around the state with a student version of the Tony Awards.
Theater students from across Washington will meet en masse at The 5th to celebrate and honor the exceptional musical theater productions presented during the 2011-12 school year.
For the 2011-12 high school theater season, 191 nominations and 99 honorable mentions were given to the 93 productions in various categories.
Lake Stevens High School captured nominations for Chicago including Outstanding Lighting Design, Outstanding Lobby Display, Outstanding Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role for Mandy Henrichsen as Roxie and Audrey Fletcher as Velma.
This year, 93 high school musical productions applied for consideration, with well over 9,000 students participating. At the awards show, the nominated students and schools will perform excerpts from their shows and get a taste of what it’s like to perform in front of a packed house.
An estimated 2,100 high school students are expected to attend, along with their families and friends.
