Each year, Seattle’s 5th Avenue Theatre presents the 5th Avenue Awards to exceptional High School Theaters from throughout the state. This year 128 different musicals were in competition for these prestigious accolades.
This year I am proud to say the Auburn High School Theatre Department: Troupe 17 received Honorable Mentions in the categories of Outstanding Set Design with a special thanks to Chris Olds our PAC Technical Director and more importantly your brand new boosters earned a nod in the category of Outstanding Lobby Design!
But the best news of all, Gillian Gomes received a nomination for Outstanding Female Actor in a supporting role!
When asked how she felt about her nomination, she felt ecstatic. “It feels amazing. Cause I’ve been working on getting onto 5th Avenue since freshman year, so it’s like a huge accomplishment. I like to thank Mr.Cox for all his help with my character”.
She, along with other members of our Troupe, will attend the official ceremony on June 3rd to see the final results.
This is a big honor! Please Congratulate all of our cast, crew and pit members when you see them!
