Bellevue Christian High School’s musical, “Bye Bye Birdie,” and two performers have been nominated in the 5th Avenue Theatre’s sixth annual high school musical theatre awards.
Bellevue Christian was nominated in Outstanding Costume Design. In addition, Stephanie Miller was nominated for Outstanding Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role for her performance at Rose Alvarez.
Austin Tott was nominated for Outstanding Performance by an Actor in a Featured Ensemble Role for his performance as Harvey Johnson.
Bellevue International School received an honorable mention in costume design for “Once on this Island.”
The awards are designed to shine the spotlight on high school musical theater programs and offer drama students the same recognition that accomplished high school athletes have received for decades.
During the past school year, The 5th Avenue sent a team of theater professionals to evaluate each school’s production. Nominations are made in 21 categories, from overall musical production to lobby display.
The awards will be held at 7 p.m. on Monday, June 9 at Benaroya Hall (200 University St., Seattle). Nominated students and schools will perform numbers from their shows and get a taste of what it’s like to perform in front of a packed house.
