PCHS TAA makes a Record Milestone
On May 26, the cast and crew of Zombie Prom traveled up to Ellie Calkins Opera House to attend the Bobby G awards. The Bobby G awards honor Colorado high school students in drama and is modeled similarly to the Tony awards.
PCHS received multiple nominations for its spring musical production. The nominations included Outstanding Achievement in Costume Design, credits to the costuming team Joy Lopez, senior, Anyeli Gonzalez Parra, sophomore, Willow Stephenson, freshman, Grace Secora, sophomore and Paloma Tapia, senior), Outstanding Achievement in Lighting Design, credits to the lighting team Kylie Good, senior and Virgil Lindt, senior, Outstanding Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role, credits to Christopher Ryan senior, Outstanding Achievement in Direction, credits to the directors Taylor Gilman and Amairani Chacon, senior, and Outstanding Performance by an Orchestra. County Highschool won three of its’ nominations, (Lighting Design, Actor in a Supporting, and Orchestra).
When asked to describe how she felt after being nominated, Senior Amairani Chacon replied, “I didn't process the nomination for a couple of days because it didn't feel real. To have been recognized for my work for Zombie Prom out of multiple high schools in the state was truly frightening and amazing at the same time.” Sophomore, Anyeli Gonzalez Parra described her experience as well, "I felt really happy that I was given the opportunity to attend and be with my friends and coworkers." These awards are a testament to the quality of work in the TAA!
