Best Student Theater Production - 2010
The Drowsy Chaperone by Episcopal High School
There's no doubt as to this year's winner for Student Theater Production — hands down it's The Drowsy Chaperone produced by Episcopal High School. Led by the charming and delightful Stephanie Styles in the role of showgirl Janet Van de Graaff, the spoof of Broadway musicals swept the prestigious Tommy Tune Awards, getting a total of 15 nominations and six wins, including the awards for Best Musical, Best Direction and Best Choreography. Styles took home the award for Best Leading Actress (and also won a scholarship for her performance), and it's easy to see why — she was the perfect mix of ingenue and strumpet, attacking the deceptively complex score with impressive vocal control and mastery.
