June 5, 2017 | “It is a humbling and incredible honor for all involved,” said Director Rebecca Marianetti. “In addition to our amazing actors, musicians and crew, the amount of support we have received from our team of talented and tireless faculty, administration and community has been phenomenal. To end the year with this honor is icing on the cake. We are proud to live in a community that understands education through the arts is essential.” 

The production received the award June 5 at the Broadway Playhouse in Chicago.
