     Note: In order to qualify in the categories of “sets” (including Special Effects) and “costumes” the materials must be created by students and/or parents in that school; a “student orchestra” must be predominantly students from that school.

     The purpose of the Henry Mancini Musical Theatre Awards is to recognize, nurture, and encourage students who achieve excellence in presenting their high school musicals.  These “Awards of Excellence” are affectionately called Henries in honor of Beaver County’s most famous musical artist, the late Henry Mancini of Aliquippa.  As in recent years, a member of the Mancini family will be in attendance to participate in the awards ceremony.

     All nominees will be honored at a special reception on May 17.  The awards of excellence will be presented at a gala celebration on Wednesday, May 24, in Metheny Fieldhouse at Geneva College in Beaver Falls.  For ticket information, call the public relations office at 724-847-6521.
