Earlier this semester, professional theatre representatives from the Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts adjudicated Montverde Academy’s production of Barnum and No Way to Treat a Lady.  Forty different regional high schools were reviewed throughout the school year and MVA’s Theatre Department was nominated for a host of awards in both the performance and technical categories!

The adjudicating team will meet at the end of the season to determine the 2016 Applause Awards recipients from the complete list of nominations from all participating schools.  Selected award winners will be showcased during the Applause Awards ceremony on Sunday, June 5, 2016, at 6:00pm inside the Walt Disney Theater.  For more on our thespians Applause Award nominees and winners, and recently announced winners, please visit here HERE.
