Holy Innocents’ celebrates Shuler Musical Theater Award nominations

SANDY SPRINGS, Ga. -- The Holy Innocents’ (HIES) Fine Arts Department has garnered two nominations and seven honorable mentions for its memorable production of last fall’s Once Upon a Mattress.

The HIES cast and production crew was nominated for Best Overall Production, and senior Payton Anderson was nominated for best Leading Actress in the Georgia High School Musical Theater Awards competition, commonly called the Shuler Hensley Awards. Honorable mentions went to faculty member Maria Karres-Williams for Direction, Drew Andersen for Lead Actor, the cast for Ensemble recognition, and staff member Harley Gould for Lighting Design and Technical Execution.

Fine Arts Department Chair Heidi Domescik also recognized Upper School Choral Director Tom FitzStephens and Production Assistant Prather Rehm for their excellent work on the production.

The Shuler Awards, considered the “Tonys for teens,” are named for award-winning actor Shuler Hensley, a Georgia native who made his Broadway debut in 2000. The Shulers celebrate the best in Georgia high school musical theatre.

The awards ceremony, which takes place April 18 at the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre, will feature performances from Holy Innocents’ entire cast, as well as a solo from Payton Anderson.
