Congrats to Milton Theatre Company National Youth Arts nominations and award winners for 2017/2018

Milton Theatre Company is proud to announce its National Youth Arts nominations and award winners for the 2017/2018 school year. We submitted all four productions to the NYA review and judging panel, via our DVDs and playbills, for consideration. The National Youth Arts recently announced the winners for the 11th Annual National Youth Arts Awards for the Eastern Region, which Milton HS is a member; however, we were judged against all shows across the United States.

This year more than 600 productions were considered for the awards, including shows from more than 220 different members spanning 17 states and the UK. This year’s award winners were selected from nominations by a panel of more than 50 judges and reviewers. In addition to the youth who performed in schools and youth arts companies, anyone age 18 and under who performed at a show reviewed by a judge was also considered for the NYA awards, as well as the adults who participated in the youth productions backstage (directors, set designers, costume designers, etc.) and guest adult performers in productions designed for youth.

Milton Theatre Company earned 12 awards and 18 additional nominations! There will be an awards ceremony held at the Riverdale YM-YWHA in Bronx, New York on Sunday, August 19. Congratulations to all the nominees, award winners, and everyone who supported the program to make this all possible.

Thespian Seniors Receive Honors

Thespians Honors

The International Thespian Society is one of the first honor societies created for theatre students in high school. It was formed in 1929 and is overseen by the Education Theatre Association.

A student of theatre earns membership in the society through active involvement with the school’s theatre program Thespian Troupe by the accumulation of points in both technical theatre and performance. A total of 10 points are needed to be inducted into the troupe. Each point is the equivalent of 10 hours, or a total of 100 hours of theatre involvement.

The following seniors are members of Milton Theatre’s Thespian Troupe 6168.

Claire Buchanan
Zach Collazo
Ethan Day
Cole Dobbs
Eric Franklin
Hayden Fravel
Orion Holcomb
Ben Hutkoff
Jackson Jacobs
Mason McCool
Patrick Nugent
Raven Silvey
Graham Troiani
Emily Wilder
Jack Wiley
Ben Wilson
Andrew Wright

Once a student contributes 600 hours of involvement, or 60 points, they pass a benchmark to become what known as an Honors Thespian. Seniors at this level receive honors cords to wear at graduation.

The following students were awarded honors cords.

Allie Arasi
Helen Blumberg
Gianna Candelmo
Ariel Caudle
Jackson Fuchs
Haley Garrett
Ally Hollis
Sydney Hunt
Ben Hutkoff
Eli Jones
Haley Mahoney-Werner
Josh Martin
Bronwyn Milne
Montana Nichols
Mary Caroline Owens
Ashley Sbarra
Laura Sidwell
Paige Underwood
Sara Underwood
Katelyn Williams

The next benchmark is called National Honors Thespian. Students who reach 120 points, or 1200 hours of involvement in the theatre are recognized at as a National Honor Thespian. These students are awarded a Thespian Medallion to also be work at graduation.

The following students received medals.

Allie Arasi
Jackson Fuchs
Sydney Hunt
Eli Jones
Haley Mahoney-Werner
Josh Martin
Mary Caroline Owens
Ashley Sbarra
Laura Sidwell
Paige Underwood
Sara Underwood

At 180 Points, or 1800 hours of involvement, a student is recognized as an International Honor Thespian.

This is quite an achievement and pretty much means the student was actively involved with nearly each production at their school beginning the freshman year. We have seven International Honor Thespians to recognize this year. This student will receive a white stole to be work at graduation in addition to medal and cords.

180 Points: Haley Mahoney-Werner
180 Points: Paige Underwood
183 Points: Laura Sidwell
185 Points: Sara Underwood
200 Points: Josh Martin
201 Points: Allie Arasi
217 Points: Mary Caroline Owens

Seniors, your challenge and thespian motto: Act well your part, there all the honor lies. Milton Theatre’s 2017-18 graduating Thespians.
