I am proud to announce that the following students have been honored by the MACY Childress and Cappies organizations! The Cappies ceremony was held last night at The Grove in Anaheim, and the MACY ceremony was held last weekend at the Segerstrom Center for the Performing Arts.
The MACY Childress organization was founded in 1969 to recognize the work of high school theatre students. Tri-School was honored to be asked to perform a 4 minute excerpt from our spring musical, Seussical on the mainstage at Segerstrom on May 27th, 2012. The Segerstrom Center for the Performing Arts (formerly Orange County Performing Arts Center) is the largest theatre in Orange County.
