EAHS Students nominated for Acting Awards

January 25, 2023- Elizabethtown Area High School’s fall production of Peter and the Starcatcher landed two nominations for the 2023 Hershey Theater Apollo Awards. Senior Elyse Hayden and sophomore Scott Creason have been nominated for Outstanding Lead Actress and Actor. The school’s performance also received an honorable mention in the Outstanding Play category.

High schools in Cumberland, Dauphin, Lebanon, and Perry counties were eligible to receive nominations. The Elizabethtown Area School District was also invited to participate due to its proximity to Hershey itself. Independent evaluators representing the Hershey Theater Apollo Awards attended each school’s production to gather the list of nominees. The awards focus solely on the performances of the young people, honoring their acting, singing, and dancing abilities. 

A Tony Awards-inspired ceremony will be held later this school year at the Hershey Theatre. In addition to the winners for both fall plays and spring musicals being announced, the production will feature performances by the casts, crews, and orchestra members from the local schools.
