The 2020 Halo Awards
An event every day that begins at 7:00 PM, repeating until June 25, 2020
Seven Angels Theatre will present the 17th Annual Halo High School Theatre Awards in June but with a little twist, they will be seen for three nights on Youtube! The awards that celebrate the best in high school theatre will be on June 23, 24 and 25. Each night at 7 PM, awards will be presented to a different group of schools. Plus, everyone can watch from the comfort of their own home. Pop some popcorn, login and have a great time! It’s a great show for the whole family. The awards honor high school students’ achievements in all aspects of theatre. Awards are given in numerous categories including: Best Actor and Actress in a Musical/Play, Best Supporting Actor and Actress in a Musical/Play, Best Performance by the Cast in an Ensemble Production, Best Comic Actor and Actress in a Musical/Play, Best Student Choreographer, plus categories for lighting, design, stage management, special effects, and many more.
This year over 81 high schools from across the state of Connecticut will be participating! Because of the shortened school year, not all musicals and plays were performed. Some good news though, Michelle Gotay will be returning as host this year.
It’s a big process to select the best. Judges have been attending performances throughout the year and have been submitting evaluations for each show. The judges then meet in the spring to deliberate the nominees and the winners, which culminates in three nights of awards. A list of the nominations can be found at SevenAngelsTheatre.org. Plan on attending this fantastic show! There will be some great guests honoring the students too. Check our facebook page or website for the link to the awards in the next few weeks.
Sponsoring the awards this year will be Ion Bank Foundation, Lions Club of Waterbury and Connecticut Office of the Arts.
