The casts of Peter Pan and The Addams Family were invited to attend the Applause Awards last Saturday evening at the Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts. It is with great pride that we announce that our very own Alex Sheffield earned the first runner up for this year’s Jimmy Awards performer. In addition, Alex also won a $15,000.00 scholarship to attend the American Musical and Dramatic Academy. Alex competed against 13 other female performers all across Central Florida. Alex spent the last week and a half participating in a rigorous audition process that culminated with her performing one last time as Peter Pan on stage during the Applause Awards.
Abby Cheslock and Jackson Rifenberg received their outstanding young performer awards. Laura Campos and Sophia Bresciani represented WPS by performing in the opening number beside Alex Sheffield.
We are proud of our theatre arts students and the achievements earned this year.
