Pine-Richland students recently received some “Big” news.
The high school was nominated for two Gene Kelly Awards for the March performance of “Big: The Musical.”
The awards, sponsored by Pittsburgh CLO, recognize outstanding high school musical performances.
Pine-Richland High School was nominated for “Big” in the following categories:
- Best Lighting Design (Budget Category III)
- Best All-Student Orchestra
The Pittsburgh CLO’s 23rd Annual Gene Kelly Awards will be held May 25 at the Benedum Center for the Performing Arts.
A total of 29 Allegheny County high schools competed in this year’s Gene Kelly Awards. A panel of judges comprised of performing arts educators, arts administrators, entertainment professionals and performers selected the nominees.
The Gene Kelly Awards were launched in 1991 as a means to recognize and encourage student achievement and to focus the attention of the community and school districts on the importance of musical theater and arts education.
