WHS Players Nominated for 6 Tommy Awards
Congratulations to the cast, crew, and band of “The Drowsy Chaperone” on their recent Tommy Award nominations including Outstanding Musical, Outstanding Ensemble, Outstanding Lead Performers (Jeremy Hoesly, Remi VanDaele, Josh Pelayo), Outstanding Supporting Performers (Mitch Dalzin, Gianna Creanza), Outstanding Direction (Jim McCulloch), and Outstanding Set Design (Steve Smith). Named for local Broadway star Tom Wopat, the Tommy Awards encourage, recognize, and honor excellence in high school musical theater. Educators, industry professionals, and theater experts review productions at more than 60 high schools, provide valuable feedback and advice, and honor schools and individuals’ achievements with category-based awards. Schools and individuals receive awards at a ceremony held at Overture Center in June, and two outstanding performers advance to The National High School Musical Theatre Awards competition in New York City.
