If you have contact with any of these students or any of the student involved in “Bright Star” please make sure to congratulate them. There are 6 nominees in each category and over 50 shows from around the metro area were adjudicated this year. Also, Thank You to all of you that support the ON Theatre Program and the ON performing arts programs. It is great to work in a building where the arts are celebrated!
As a department we also like to celebrate with our sister schools:
Every Olathe High School got at least 1 nominations tonight a first in 4 or 5 years
And of the 6 Overall Production nominees 3 are Olathe High Schools (Olathe East, Olathe West and Olathe North)
Have a good and healthy summer!
