Klein ISD Nominated for 25 Tommy Tune Awards
Klein ISD high schools are nominated for a total of 25 Tommy Tune Awards recognizing their outstanding musical productions this year – one of the highest numbers of nominations in district history, topping last year’s nominations by three!
The nominations are led by Klein Cain with 13 nominations, followed by Klein High with nine, Klein Collins with two, and Klein Forest with one.
“The greater Houston area is home to some of the best high school musical productions in the state so any number of nominations signifies incredible artistic and technical excellence by our students and teachers,” Klein ISD Director of Fine Arts Joel Wren said. “The production of a musical involves students from numerous disciplines across a campus and it ends up being an amazing educational experience.”
The student-owned, student-produced creations are judged by Houston-based theatre professionals to compete for nominations across 15 categories including technical execution, design, and best overall musical.
Klein Cain’s 13 nominations for their rendition of “The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee” tie the campus with only two others in the area for most nominations received.
“To have our hard work recognized means more than I can say,” Klein Cain junior Wilson Robinson said. “Everyone who worked on this musical brought their all from beginning to end.”
The schools are nominated amongst 50 other high schools in the greater Houston area. Winners of Tommy Tune Awards will be announced in April 2020.
The Tommy Tune Awards Program celebrates the educational value, artistry, and community of high school musical theatre in the Greater Houston area. Theatre Under The Stars acts as the administrative body of the Tommy Tune Awards.
