Last night the Massachusetts Educational Theatre Guild (METG) announced the nominees for their Musical Theatre Awards and by the end of the live broadcast Hudson High School's production of The Producers was nominated for 6 awards:
Best Hair and Makeup
Best Featured Actor- Vinicius Bulhoes
Best Actor- Jack Colaianni
Best Acting Ensemble (this is for the entire company of the show) Best Overall Production
The actual MET Awards Ceremony will take place at the Cutler Majestic Theatre in Boston on Monday June 9th at 7 PM. As we were nominated for Best Overall Production Cody Grimm and Jack Colaianni will perform We Can Do It at the awards ceremony...in front of 1200 people! Fifty-six Massachusetts schools were eligible for nomination for the MET Awards and to be one of five schools to be singled out for each of these categories is a huge honor. (We were ineligible for several other categories as adults completed more than 50% of the work.) Fingers crossed for June 9, but honestly, this is a pretty amazing moment in and of itself for HHS Drama and our schools as a whole.
