OHS Students Shine As Playhouse Square's Dazzle Awards Nominees!
Orange High School students are shining bright as 2017 Playhouse Square Dazzle Awards Nominees!
Congratulations to the following four students who were nominated for their roles in the spring OHS production of "Little Shop of Horrors":
Junior Autumn Key - Best Supporting Actress as "Audrey 2"
Sophomore Ryan Vincent - Best Supporting Actor as "Mr. Mushnik"
Senior Camryn Fish and Freshman Jessica Lebowitz - Best Costume Design
This marks the first year OHS was invited to compete in the Dazzle Awards competition involving 23 high schools and 1500 students in a seven-county area. Students will perform at the Dazzle Awards Ceremony on May 20th at Playhouse Square's Connor Palace. The winners in the Best Actor and Best Actress categories will have the opportunity to participate in the National High School Musical Theatre Awards in New York City. The general public is invited to watch the Dazzle Awards show; tickets may be purchased on line via the Playhouse Square website.
The Dazzle Awards, modeled after the Tony Awards®, were created "to inspire and honor excellence in high school musical theater, and to recognize the importance of musical theater and arts education within the Northeast Ohio community. A panel of adjudicators attend one production at each participating school, provide educational feedback on the official evaluation form and determine nominees and awards for participating schools."
Good luck to our nominees on May 20th!
