For the second year in a row, the theatre department at St. Luke’s School received the most Halo Awards nominations throughout the state. The Halo Awards is the most prestigious recognition of high school theatre in Connecticut. Judges saw productions from more than sixty schools from throughout Connecticut, adjudicating both public and independent schools.

St. Luke’s received a total of twenty-one nominations this year. Ridgefield resident Kayleigh Bowler received a nomination as leading actress in Urinetown. St. Luke’s Director of Theatre Arts Jason Peck said, “The Halo Awards is the equivalent of the CT high school Tony Awards. It’s a great evening where they not only celebrate the nominees but all the students who made these great performances and great designs happen.”
