A Milton High School production won six awards in the 2018 Georgia High School Musical Theatre Awards, including best overall production.
The school's "Cabaret" also won the following categories: ensemble, sound, scenic design, best performance by a supporting actor (Harrison Lewis) and best performance by a featured performer (Louis Sellers).
Also known as the Shuler Hensley Awards, more than 70 schools from 29 Georgia counties entered the statewide competition this year. A live awards show with a red carpet, student performances and a live orchestra aired on Georgia Public Broadcasting on April 19.
Other metro Atlanta schools and students were also in the spotlight. Parker Jennings of Greater Atlanta Christian School won best performance by a leading actress in “My Fair Lady,” and Laughton Berry of Tri-Cities High School won best performance by a leading actor in “Pippin.”
Jennings and Berry will travel to New York City to participate in the National High School Musical Theatre Awards at the Minskoff Theater on Broadway on June 25.
