3 Klein ISD High Schools Win Prestigious Tommy Tune Award

3 Klein ISD High Schools Win Prestigious Tommy Tune Award

Bravo to our Klein High, Klein Forest, and Klein Cain Theatre programs in light of their recent achievement of being named Tommy Tunes Awards Winners! Students from these three schools received awards in Outstanding Ensemble, Outstanding Orchestra, Outstanding Scenic Design, Outstanding Actor, and Outstanding Lighting Design.

This is the first year the Tommy Tunes Awards show has been held in person since 2019. The Tommy Tune Awards Program celebrates the educational value, artistry, and community of high school musical theatre in Greater Houston.

Klein ISD Director of Fine Arts, Mr. Creston Herron, is exceptionally proud of these passionate students for their love of theatre and how they represent our school district.

“Our district prides itself on our community’s rich musical theatre tradition. Each year, our high schools produce professional-level musicals that bring our community together and celebrate the talents and passions of our students,” Mr. Herron said. “We appreciate the Theater Under The Stars organization for recognizing our students and teachers for their dedication to excellence and artistry!”

Winning a Tommy Tune Award is a remarkable achievement that provides a moment of pride and recognition for the students and serves as a launchpad for their future careers in the performing arts. In addition, it’s a beautiful reminder of the transformative power of music and theatre and how they can bring communities together to celebrate and uplift the incredible talent of our youth.

We hope that our Klein community joins us in celebrating all of our high school theatre students for their Tommy Tune nominations and awards—every musical was breathtaking and phenomenal. Again, congratulations to each cast and crew on a job well done and to the students actively pursuing their purpose in theatre: we are excited to see your success in the years to come.
