Bravo! All 5 Klein ISD High Schools Earn Tommy Tunes Nominations
All five Klein ISD high schools earned nominations for the Tommy Tunes Awards, sponsored by Theatre Under the Stars. As a result of a season of first-class, show-stopping performances, our students totaled 17 nominations this year!
“I am so proud of our students for acquiring these nominations and all the hard work they have put into their performances,” Klein ISD Director of Fine Arts Creston Herron said. “I know our theatre programs are second-to-none, and it’s no surprise that Klein ISD is yet again a frontrunner in the standard of excellence in the arts. Again, congratulations to our students-we can’t wait to see where you go from here!”
The Tommy Tune Awards (TTA) Program celebrates high school musical theatre’s educational value, artistry, and community in the Greater Houston Area.
Congratulations to each of our programs on this outstanding accomplishment! We are proud of each of you and are grateful for the experiences you all provided for our students. We cannot wait to celebrate with you at the Tommy Tunes Awards on May 4!
