Skyline High School’s drama department was recognized for its outstanding work in several categories at the 12th annual 5th Avenue Awards Honoring High School Musical Theater.

The awards ceremony, June 9 at Benaroya Hall in Seattle, is a high-school version of the Tony Awards. More than 2,000 theater students dressed in costumes were in attendance to receive awards in 21 categories.

Skyline’s Madison Willis took home one of the most highly-acclaimed awards, Outstanding Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role, for her part in “Pippin.”

Skyline’s rendition of “Pippin” received honorable mention nods in two categories — Outstanding Performance by a Chorus, and Outstanding Performance by an Actress in a Featured Ensemble Role.

Skyline was nominated for awards in five other categories — choreography, costume design, direction, hair/makeup design and lobby display.
