And The Tommy Tune Award Goes To.......
The Tommy Tune Awards -- the Tonys for local high schools -- were presented last night.
Among the nominees were schools from all over the area, presenting a pretty wide variety of plays. The big winners last night were Stratford High's production of Barnum and Seven Lakes High's production of Once Upon a Mattress.
We'd like to read mindless chatter off a cue card while standing next to a starlet, but enough of that -- who won the damn things?
