Albany High Theatre Ensemble gets six nominations

ALBANY, N.Y. (May 2, 2017) --  The Albany High School Theatre Ensemble’s 2017 production of “Oliver!” has garnered six nominations for the first regional High School Musical Theatre Awards, including best actor.

 

Senior Raphael Cohen, who played the role of world-class scoundrel Fagin, was nominated best actor. Other nominations the Theatre Ensemble received include best musical, best ensemble chorus, best orchestra, best set construction and best execution of choreography.

 

Cast, crew and performers from 15 area schools were nominated in 10 categories, each with five nominees.

 

The awards ceremony will be held May 20 at 7 p.m. at Proctor’s Theatre in Schenectady. The Tony Award-style show will feature performances from students from 16 local high schools. Tickets are $15 each and go on sale Thursday at proctors.org.

 

Should Cohen win Best Actor, he will represent the Capital Region at “The Jimmys,” the National High School Musical Theatre Awards ceremony in New York City.

 

“Oliver!” ran April 6-9 and was directed by Ward Dales and Gregory Theodore Marsh. Under Dales’ leadership, the Albany High Theatre Ensemble has won more than two dozen awards for excellence.

 

Congratulations to all for this great achievement!
