MAHS Takes Home a Gene Kelly Award!

Gene Kelly Award crew

The Gene Kelly Awards were held on Saturday, May 28. Out of eight nominations, Moon Area High School won Best Costume Design!

In addition to taking home the Best Costume Design award, Moon also made Gene Kelly Awards history with Jack Cipriani being nominated for two awards in the same night. Jack was nominated for Best Supporting Actor and Outstanding Student Artist!

"It was both magical and surreal to be surrounded by so many like-minded students and families at the 2022 Gene Kelly Awards; the first in-person ceremony since 2019!" said Mr. Robert Michael, MAHS Theatre Producer & Director. "I wish there was a way to convey the energy that we felt at the Benedum Center."

As semi-finalists for the acting awards, Jack Cipriani, Lucia Palmer, and Sasha Konitzer got to perform the opening number in front of a sold-out crowd of 3,000 people. In addition, each school, regardless of nominations, sent two students to perform in the finale. Kayla Kosarik and Blythe Helsel got to represent Moon in the finale.

"One of the reasons why I love the Gene Kelly Awards program is that, aside from celebrating and bringing the national spotlight on excellence in high school musical theatre, it allows these young artists to meet and collaborate with people just like them!" said Mr. Michael. "I'm so proud of the work our students did that earned them a record-breaking eight nominations, and I can't wait until next year's ceremony!"

Congratulations and great job to the entire cast and crew of The Addams Family!
