Grease wins 21 Spotlight Awards


A huge congratulations to the cast of crew of our fall musical, "Grease" for winning a record 21 awards through the Spotlight program and Hennepin Theatre Trust. Washburn's musical won the highest award, Outstanding Achievement in a Musical, which sends them to the Orpheum Theatre in June to perform in the awards showcase. Only 10 schools out of the 125 involved get this honor to perform on the Orpheum stage. Other big award winners were Madeline Huiting, Mary Bair, and Hattie Tschida for "Best Actor in a Musical" as well as Ryan Rowell, Maddie Barnhill, and Lillian Richman for their roles in technical theatre. Photos: • Opening Night Nov. 11 • Rehearsal Nov. 9 • Act 2 Rehearsal Nov. 8 • Act 1 Rehearsal Nov. 8
