April 26th Shuler Hensley Awards Ceremony Celebrates High School Musical Theater

Cobb County, GA --  (submitted by Barkley Russell) Greater Atlanta high school musical theater will light up the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre stage on April 26th, for the 2011 Shuler Hensley Awards, celebrating excellence in high school musical theater.

“How better to recognize and encourage a new generation of artists and audiences than through programs that give expression to young people’s talent and that embody a spirit of camaraderie and celebration,” said Michael S. Taormina CFE, Cobb Energy Centre managing director, “the Shuler Hensley Awards program does exactly that, and we are honored to have it among the offerings of the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre."

Two Shuler Award recipients will take away more than a gleaming, glass trophy. The award-winning leading actor and actress will be eligible to compete this summer in the National High School Musical Theater Awards, The Jimmy™, on Broadway in New York City.

Red Carpet, Music and Merry-Making

Conceived as an annual showcase and celebration for high school theater education programs, the Atlanta awards program—formally named the Shuler Hensley Awards for Excellence in High School Musical Theater—is an initiative of the Cobb Energy Centre educational outreach program, ARTSBRIDGE.

The Shuler Awards ceremony is fashioned after Broadway’s Tony Awards beginning with a glamorous red carpet event at 6 pm.  The curtain will rise at 7:30 pm with an exciting opening number performance starring the Shuler Student Ensemble and Shuler Hensley. The ceremony will also feature entertaining performances by the six schools nominated for overall production and leading actor and actress nominees. Presenters include local and national celebrities, community leaders, and arts professionals.
