I wanted to share a few photos from the 5th Avenue Theatre High School Musical Awards. Ellen didn't win in her category, but we discovered she was a nominee for her role as Berthe in Pippin from 8,000 students! And she had a glorious time on stage. What a night to remember!
She entered through this door! Woohoo!
Here she is in costume as Berthe from Pippin before the current world premiere poster of Catch Me If You Can, now playing at the 5th Avenue.
An alley full of actors were waiting to take the stage!
El and I after her performance.
There were awesome presentations and performances!
Ellen represented Sumner High School with the dance captain, Brian, and she was surprised to see her Berthe boys had come to support her.
Thanks to the generosity of Justina Chen Headley, El's friend Beth was able to attend.
It was a beautiful night full of talent. Congrats to all the honorable mentions, nominees, and winners! "There's no business like show business."
