The Cypress Lake Center for the Arts performance of All Shook Up was honored as the best musical at the inaugural High School Musical Awards tonight at the Barbara B Mann Performing Arts hall. This capped a fun-filled evening of high school theatre. About 700 people were in attendance at the first ever event and host Robert Van Winkle, NBC-2 weatherman, made it a very memorable evening with his own excitement for the event. The evening started with performances and behind the scenes footage from all participating school's shows. Then came the awards themselves. Cypress Lake ended up with three awards on the evening. The cast was honored for Best Ensemble, an award dedicated to all of the chorus members. Parker Slaybaugh won the Best Actor category, which also came with a $2,500 scholarship to Edison Community College. The final award of the evening was for Best Musical, which came with a cash award of $2,500 to be used in next year's musical and Cypress Lake was announced as the big winner. There was much cheering as the entire cast and crew went up onstage to accept the award. Congrats to all of those involved in our amazing production of All Shook Up and we are definately looking forward to next year.
