Usually every May, Seven Angels Theatre in Waterbury presents a Hollywood-style awards night for outstanding High School Theater participants. Like everything else via COVID-19, this year the Halo Awards will happen a little later and virtually. The awards honor high school students with achievements in all aspects of theater. Awards are given in numerous categories. So instead of dressing in gorgeous dresses and gowns and tuxedos, this year nominees will be watching the presentation on three nights on YouTube! That means that they can be in their sweat suits or pajamas. It really doesn’t matter what the high schoolers are wearing, except for smiles which they all should be wearing just for being nominated. The three dates are June 23, 24, and 25 at 7 p.m.
Many of our talented local students are up for awards. With 81 schools participating, there are too many nominees to list them all. However, here is a sampling of some of the local nominees. Good luck to one and all.
