The theatre department’s production of ‘Pippin’ was nominated in five categories at this year’s Greater Austin High School Musical Theater Awards, or GAHSMTA, nomination celebration. ‘Pippin’ is eligible to be awarded for best lighting design, best orchestra, best ensemble, best leading actor, and best production.

I get to share the stage with incredible performers, and share the passion of musical theatre with others, on and off the stage.”

— Matthew Kennedy


“It’s really nice to get nominated this year,” junior Ellena Martinez said. “We certainly don’t perform just for the awards, but it’s nice to get recognized. I’m very excited to get to perform at GAHSMTA, as it’s fun and a great place to meet some amazing people who also love theatre.”

Senior Matthew Kennedy was nominated for best lead actor for his performance as ‘Leading Player,’ and will perform one of his songs from the musical at the GAHSMTA celebration. The company will also perform their rendition of ‘Glory’, a number from the musical, due to their nomination for best production at the ceremony. 

“I’m very excited, surprised, and grateful to be nominated,” Kennedy said. “I get to share the stage with incredible performers, and share the passion of musical theatre with others, on and off the stage.”

The GAHSMTA ceremony will be held on April 13 at 7:30pm at the Long Center. Tickets to attend the event will go on sale on March 27 at noon, and prices are yet to be announced.

“The cast and crew were dedicated to put on an amazing show, and really deserve this nomination,” sophomore Jack Johnson said. “It’s going to be great to see them perform again at the Long Center because it shows how much their hard work paid off.”
