Last night was the announcement of nominations for the METG Musical Theater Awards, and we are proud to announce that the BHS Production of Legally Blonde received 5 nominations:
Best Supporting Actress: Caralyn Aufiero
Best Supporting Actor: Sam Korn
Best Specialty Ensemble: Julia Regier, Helena Kim and Isabelle Luongo
Best Featured Actor: Tyler Normile
Best Sound Design: Greg LaBombard, Kadra Lindmeier, Michelle Kornberg, Anna Makar-Limanov, Princy Sundurakar and Sam Casey
To provide some context, this year’s METG program had 47 High School entries (compared to about 30 last year), and the criteria for technical categories were restructured to honor student design work as opposed to adult designers. A handful of schools received nominations in 5 or 6 categories and only 3 schools received more than 6 nominations, so Belmont HS is once again in very good company, recognized with one of the excellent musical theater productions in the state.
The METG awards ceremony is scheduled for Monday, June 9th at 7pm at the Cutler-Majestic Theater in Boston.
Please take a moment when you see them to congratulate these students, as well as their director Ezra Flam, for receiving this honor. These nominations were all very well deserved as a testament to all of the hard work that went into the production of Legally Blonde.
