SHS Drama Receives Four Tommy Awards for Sweeney Todd
Posted 05/12/2017 10:01AM

The Tommy Awards* results are in and the Shorewood High School Drama Department received four awards this year for their winter musical, Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street. Sweeney Todd as a whole received "Outstanding Musical." Additionally, the entire artistic team earned Tommy Awards as well. Student winners include: Junior Max Pink for "Outstanding Leading Performance as Sweeney Todd" and Junior Zoe Bockhorst for "Outstanding Leading Performance as Mrs. Lovett," and Senior Alice Apfelbach was awarded the "Spirit Award" for outstanding musical theatre spirit!

This year, more than 85 productions were entered and only 12 productions were named Outstanding Musical. By earning the Outstanding Musical label, it is clear that every member of the SHS production, including directors, actors, techies, pit orchestra musicians, and costumers had a hand in creating excellent theatre.

Because of their success, the cast of Sweeney Todd has been asked to perform at the Tommy Awards Ceremony at the Overture Center in Madison on Sunday, June 11. Max, Zoe, and Alice will also perform in additional production numbers by virtue of their individual accomplishments. The show will be recorded and broadcast on statewide Wisconsin Public TV.

*Named for local Broadway star Tom Wopat, the Tommy Awards encourage, recognize and honor excellence in high school musical theater. Educators and industry professionals review productions at more than 80 high schools in 23 counties and provide valuable feedback.


The upcoming spring musical The Secret Garden is also entered in the 2017-2018 Tommy Awards!
