Garrison Forest had the honor of hosting the 5th Annual Baltimore Theatre Awards in Garland Theater on Sunday, June 2. The BTAs celebrate high school theatre in both public and independent schools located in the Baltimore area. Each participating school is eligible to submit one of their theatre productions during the year to be adjudicated and reviewed by Baltimore theatre professionals who range from a wide variety of backgrounds. The judges complete score sheets and written reviews to provide feedback and praise of the high school productions, ultimately helping their programs to grow. At the end of the season, each participating school is invited to the awards ceremony to celebrate all of their collective accomplishments in theatre. This year, Garrison Forest received a total of six nominations for our production of the musical FOOTLOOSE:
Ralston Finney '19: Supporting Actress in a Musical
Hannah Glose '20: Supporting Actress in a Musical
Lucy Saper '19: Featured Actress in a Musical
Sam Cure (Baltimore City College): Featured Actor in a Musical
Footloose Ensemble: Featured Ensemble in a Musical
Footloose Stage Crew: Stage Crew for a Musical
Congratulations to these students on their nominations! And a special thank you to Serena Shafer '19 and Arin Laycook '21 who helped run the event from backstage on Sunday night.
