BHS musicals earn recognitions from Hennepin Theatre Trust

The Burnsville High School Theatre Guild began participating this year in Hennepin Theatre Trust’s Spotlight Education, a program that evaluates casts, crews and technicians as well as providing master classes for high school theatre students.  

The school’s two musicals, “The Music Man” and “Mary Poppins,” both earned outstanding rankings in recent recognition from Hennepin Theatre Trust. Along with these high ranks, came specific feedback for many individual performers both on stage and behind the scenes.

“We are one of a handful of schools that earned Outstanding ranks for two shows,” said theatre director Amy Stead. “The entire cast of each show is invited to perform a medley at Spotlight’s Showcase in mid-June, and the individual award winners are invited to participate in the opening number alongside the individual winners from other districts. Quite an honor.”
