Tommy Tune Award Nominations

Three Spring Branch ISD high school theater departments have received a total of 15 nominations for the annual Tommy Tune Awards.

Stratford High School’s Bye Bye Birdie musical is nominated in 12 separate categories, an incredible record of accomplishment before a single award is presented.

Also nominated are Spring Woods High School’s productions of The Addams Family, the Musical, in two category nominations, and Memorial High’s production of The Drowsy Chaperone, which has one nomination.

Created in 2002, the Tommy Tune Awards recognize and reward excellence by high school students and their teachers in the production of musical theater.

Winners will be announced in a Tony Awards-style ceremony on April 21 at the Hobby Center for the Performing Arts. The ceremony is open to the public, and tickets are still available.

This year, a team of Houston-based theater professionals nominated 164 school participants in 15 separate categories. In all, 45 musicals presented at area high schools were rated and judged during the past academic school year.
In addition, a separate committee is considering potential scholarship recipients.

The well-known Theatre Under the Stars (TUTS) Tommy Tune Awards are held partly to acknowledge and affirm outstanding student theater productions as well as talent at the high school level, as well as encourage future development.
