Thomas Rudden '19 won Best Performance by a Featured Actor in a Play for his role as Malvolio in the fall production, Twelfth Night, Brendan Martinez '19 won Best Costume Design for Twelfth Night and the entire production of Twelfth Night won the award for Best Classic Play.

"The honors were well deserved and recognize how much these guys give to rehearsal and support each other in the process," said Theater Director Megan Hoover. "It is truly a privileged to work with these students and watch them grow, and a pleasure to be able to celebrate that with them."

The Prep Players were nominated for 19 Halo awards for its performances of Twelfth Night and the spring musical, Urinetown.

Seven Angels Theatre in Waterbury sends judges to high schools all over the state to evaluate the work that the students are doing in a variety of categories from acting to design.
