The 2019 Shuler Musical Theatre Awards


*Count Down* *Theme Music* *Music* The elements of a theatrical production. Lighting, to illuminate the players. Scenery, designed to set the locale. Costumes, created to help build the
characters. Sound, enhanced so we don’t miss a note. And when these elements are executed to

audience, anything is possible! Ladies and gents this is the moment you’ve waited for You’ve been searching in the dark, your sweat soaking through the floor and buried in the bones is an ache that

musical theater Awards, celebrating excellence in high school musical
theater. Tonight, we celebrate the year’s best productions performed by high
schools across the state of Georgia. Now, please welcome your host Shuler Hensley! Good Evening and welcome to the 11th annual Georgia high school musical theater awards or as
we call it here the Schuler’s! Yeah, what a fantastic
opening number and the message is particularly appropriate tonight because
for me musical theater truly is the greatest show in which we can take part
right? Every piece of a musical must be precise as you just saw in that opening
number you have actors, lights, live music, stage cues, complex choreography, and
towering sets, all of which must fit together to elevate the production and
fulfill its greatest potential. Thank you all for joining our production tonight
which serves as a perfect example of the hard work and focus expertise it takes
to orchestrate something truly special and that’s just my hair and makeup team.
Yes but seriously our sponsors and crew are dedicated to putting on the best
Schuler’s to date and we have a truly amazing show for you this evening. If
you’re watching at home or on your phone that’s thanks to our partnership with
Georgia Public Broadcasting and Georgia State University television. and if you’re not watching at home, then
thank you for joining us here live in this beautiful Cobb Energy Performing
Arts Center right here in Atlanta, Georgia. Where the Shuler awards are
proudly presented by Arts Bridge Foundation. Arts Bridge focuses on making
the arts education available to all students through field trips, master
classes, workshops, and family programming like, oh well, like this one for instance.
Yeah, okay, you heard that right? All right Orchestra, no misbehaving
tonight. Do not make me come down there. So, keep it going, don’t make me come down there! Keep it going, keep it going, Of course! Our Schuler family wouldn’t be
complete without mentioning and the presenting sponsor and partner the
Georgia Lottery! Yes! Who celebrated their 25th anniversary, listen to this number,
by transferring a record one point one four billion dollars to the lottery for
education account in 2018. Speaking of wonderful partnerships I think it’s time
I pass things off to my favorite co-hosts, she’s a reporter and TV
personality who is back for her third year here at the Schuler’s: Beth Keener!
Beth? Thank You Schuler and you’re right!
It takes a lot of hard work to make a theatrical production come together
we’ll learn more about that throughout the evening and of course we’ll get a
first-hand look at the performances and programs these students have been honing
all year long. Some additional partners I want to mention who help support the
Schuler’s include Bennett Thrasher, Delta Community Credit Union, Broadway Across
America, Jimmy and Helen S Carlos and the smiley for Kylie foundation, and many
more yeah go ahead and give a round of applause. If you want to make tonight an
even bigger success spread the word on social media and the social media
platform of your choice by using the #Schulers19 and it’s okay
people you’re not in class! You can pull your phones out! Speaking of which I’m
gonna need both of my thumbs if I’m gonna help get that hashtag trending so
for now I’m gonna send it back to you, Schuller. Thank You Beth. You’re welcome. As we all settle in for tonight’s show I know
there are questions on everyone’s mind in particularly the one that is what’s
up with the beard Shuler? Right, Thanks for asking.
While many of you think I grew this this morning for tonight’s show,
it’s actually for my role in Broadway’s to the ferryman. Yes! Eight shows a week at the Jacobs Center,
running now through July seventh, tickets on sale. Now but enough of that. We have
more than a few trophies we want to award so let’s get to it.
Are you ready? *Cheering* Here to present our first award for the
evening, for Best Featured performer please welcome senior creative executive
at Tyler Perry studios Elan Johnson! Hello everyone. In a musical theater
production a featured performer plays a character, who while not the plots focal
point, adds to the overarching story. The part this actor plays may be lengthy or
succinct however a successful featured performer teaches us that there are no
small parts as each character has his or her own story to tell.
Here are your Shuler Award nominees for Best Performance by a featured performer and the Shuler goes to Emily Bonham Janes, Evans High School, The Addams Family Wow! Okay, so first I’d like to say thank
you to arts perch for this opportunity, thank you to my friends and family who
have supported me through all the miss birthday dinners and in late rehearsals
and getting home that you know midnight after cast dinners. My wonderful
wonderful director miss Rebecca Burnie who pushes me to be better every single
day! And most of all, um, to my feeder family. Some of you are in
the audience and some of you are watching at home but I want you to know
that I’m holding this but I’m holding it for you guys! You’re everything. Keep Fine Arts in schools, keep peace in
your heart, and thank you so much! Tonight, six talented high schools are
nominated for the most coveted accolade of the evening, the Shuler Award for Best
Overall production. We’ll see performances from each of these nominees throughout
the course of the night after which we’ll announce the winner of the most
prestigious award, our first musical takes us back to the 19th century in the
wake of the French Revolution. Our protagonist Jean Valjean is on the run
after serving nearly two decades in prison for stealing a loaf of bread. As
he struggles to find peace in a chaotic world, Valjean’s epic journey inspires the
audience to question their ideas of justice and what it means to be human.
Well okay, that’s pretty heavy stuff but fortunately the scene you’re about to
see pulls from one of the lighter moments in that story. Performing Master
of the House from Les Miserables please welcome our first nominees for best
overall production: Greater Atlanta Christian school *Cheering* *Music* Enter Monsieur, lay down your load
Unlace your boots, rest from the road This weighs a ton, travel’s a curse
But here we strive to lighten your purse Here the goose is cooked
Here the fat is fried And nothing’s overlooked
Till I’m satisfied Food beyond compare. Food beyond belief
Mix it in a mincer and pretend it’s beef Kidney of a horse, liver of a cat
Filling up the sausages with this and that Residents are more than welcome
Bridal suite is occupied Reasonable charges
Plus some little extras on the side! Charge ’em for the lice, extra for the mice
Two percent for looking in the mirror twice Here a little slice, there a little cut
Three percent for sleeping with the window shut When it comes to fixing prices
There are a lot of tricks he knows How it all increases, all them bits and pieces
Jesus! It’s amazing how it grows! Master of the house, quick to catch yer eye
Never wants a passerby to pass him by Servant to the poor, butler to the great
Comforter, philosopher, and lifelong mate! Everybody’s boon companion
Gives ’em everything he’s got Dirty bunch of geezers
Jesus! What a sorry little lot! I used to dream that I would meet a prince
But God Almighty, have you seen what’s happened since? Master of the house? Isn’t worth me spit!
`Comforter, philosopher’ and lifelong twit! Cunning little brain, regular Voltaire

Everybody bless his spouse! Everybody raise a glass Everybody raise a glass! Everybody raise a glass to the Master of the House! *Music* *Cheering* Well having already heard some amazing
show tunes tonight, we would like to recognize the talented people who
literally bring the music to our ears. Here to present the Shuler for orchestra,
please help me welcome two very special supporters of Arts Bridge Foundation and
the Shuler Awards: Jimmy and Helen S. Carlos. Thank you
The orchestra is an essential part of every theatrical performance.
Just as the actor learns his lines so too must the musicians master the
composition for every second of the show. And while the instrumentalists face away
from the stage the conductor watches the actors and orchestra alike translating
every action onstage into an opportunity for drama Or fun. Here are the nominees
for the Shuler award for best orchestra. And the Shuler, it goes to Todd Motter, the Walker School, Disaster *Music and Cheering* Thank you, I graciously and humbly accept
this award on behalf of Todd Motter, our conductor extraordinaire who isn’t with
us tonight and our prayers and thoughts are with him and his family. We also
would like to congratulate the other nominees and honorable mentions because
we are very well aware of how hard you have worked on your respective
productions. We have an incredible group of musicians who worked so hard and are
so good at what they do and it’s all because they love music and even more
than that, they love being a part of something bigger than themselves. I, um, Mr. Moe would like to say to all of you guys in the pit orchestra that are here
tonight to a big thank you for everything that you’ve done, to his wife
joy for supporting for supporting him and also to all of the band kids at home
who weren’t able to come tonight. Thank You arts bridge for this opportunity and also for this award. It means a great deal to us at the Walker school for our
production of Disaster thank you so so much. *Music and Cheering* Hey everybody at the 2019 Shuler Awards
ceremony. I know you guys are all having a blast and by the way loved the opening
number, thanks for that. I love what the Shuler awards recognize not only
excellence but just people loving what they do participation and people
creating communities through the theater and in particular musical theater, which
of course is very close to my heart so congratulations to all the participants,
to everybody there, and have the best night. Wish I could be there. By the way, check out the closing number. Spoiler Alert. Our next, our next
nominee for Best Overall production is a play within a play in which just about
anything could happen. In, Its 1959 and the Boston Colonial Theatre is hosting
its brand-new cowboy themed musical Robin Hood. Nearly in front of our eyes the leading lady is murdered mid-performance
leaving a theater full of suspects and more than a few questions.
Fortunately the Boston detective Frank Jaffe is fully capable of taking on the
case or is he? This classic who tonic makes light of
itself as well as the genres of mystery and musical theater along the way but
one message is clear the show must go on. Performing Show People from Curtains
please welcome your second overall production nominee Milton High School. *Cheering* Putting on a musical has gotta be the most fulfilling thing a person could ever hope to do You’re a special kind of people known as show people You live in a world of your own The audience paid plenty to sit there and clap Hearing you sing, watching you tap Ask your cleaning lady, don’t you dream of show business? To vocalize or stretch beside a bar?? Her affirmative shrug
As she shampoos your rug Let’s you know how lucky you are There’s a special kind of aura
Round a show person Just ask the next waiter you meet He walks in fifth position
His voice is just grand He gives you the check
Ya give him a hand If the boys in valet parking turned to show business
They could scalp a higher ticket for your car And my tree surgeon now
Started taking a bow A bough, get it? B-o-u-g You don’t know how lucky you are We’re a special kind of people known as show people We live in a world of our own Our days are tied to curtains
They rise and they fall We’re born every night
At half-hour call Half hour! We can’t picture being anything but show people
Civilians find the whole thing quite bizarre But that hop in our hearts
When the overture starts Helps us know how lucky we are *Music* Show people *Music* Show people *Music* Come on!
Everybody *Music* It’s an honor and a joy to be in show business I feel that spotlight hit me and i’m gone At the last curtain call
I’m the envy of all So i know the show must Go on! So thrilling! We’re show people! And on! So willing! We’re show people! And on! So thrilling that show people Go on! *Cheering* That was Milton High School performing
Show People! Coincidentally, the moves they just performed showed people why
good choreography is so important to a production. Here to present the Shuler
for choreography, please welcome the chairman of the Cobb County Commission,
Mike Boyce and the chair of the department of dance for Kennesaw State
University College of the Arts, Ivan. Too often audiences use the term dancer
and choreographer interchangeably. A dancer is a performer who executes
movements. Many musical productions include
elements of dance and as a result many actors are also of dancers. A choreographer on the other hand works behind the scenes. It’s this person’s job
to interpret the emotions on the page into the movements of the cast
heightening the word sung and the actions taken all while making these
complicated moves seem natural. So here are your nominees for the Shuler award
for choreography And the Shuler goes to From Lambert High School, Carly Ann Berg, Caroline Cannizzaro, Maddie Crews, and Jenna Wagner *Music and Cheering* Oh my goodness, thank you so much! I
especially want to thank Arts Bridge Foundation and I especially want to
thank my beautiful student assistant choreographers next to me here. I am so
proud of them and everything we accomplished as a team, I love them so
much. We had so much fun choreographing this show, it is the most dancing we’ve
ever had in a production with tap and across the floor everything and we are
so proud it all came together. Newsies been one of my favorite shows for a while and
getting to know what these amazing people has been so much fun and I love
all of you and thank you for making this the best performance it can be. I’m so
thankful for the amazing cast we were able to work with and I can’t believe
that I did these beautiful people so thank you guys so much I really
appreciate it. *Cheering* Well if you know anything about the
namesake of tonight’s show you probably guess that Schuler Hensley is a musical…
Well, we’ve got a problem with the words and the problem is also in my brain
because I don’t have them memorized but one thing about a musical that sets a
musical apart is a good old-fashioned showstopper that’s right, oh I got it now
people, a showstopper! A foot-stomping goosebump
raison musical number that’s so powerful the result all that stops the show each
year we honor the best show-stopping performance in Georgia with the Shuler
award and the chance to perform their signature number on our stage. Here to
perform Officer Krupke from West Side Story is tonight Sheeler Award winner
for best as showstopper: Southeast Whitfield High School *General Yelling* Dear kindly Sergeant Krupke
Ya gotta understand It’s just our bringin’ upke
That gets us outta hand Our mothers all are junkies
Our fathers all are drunks Golly Moses naturally we’re punks Gee, Officer Krupke, we’re very upset; We never had the love that every
Child oughta get We ain’t no delinquents
We’re misunderstood Deep down inside us there is good!
There is good! There is good, there is good
There is untapped good Like inside, the worse of us is good That’s a touchin’ good story Lemme tell it to the world! Just tell it to the Judge Dear kindly Judge, your Honor
My parents treat me rough With all their marijuana
They won’t give me a puff They didn’t wanna have me
But somehow I was had Leapin’ lizards –that’s what I’m so bad! Right!
Officer Krupke, you’re really a square; This boy don’t need a judge
He needs a analysis’s care! It’s just his neurosis that oughta be curbed
He’s psychologically disturbed I’m disturbed! We’re disturbed, we’re disturbed
We’re the most disturbed Like we’re psychologically disturbed *Music* My Father was a basterd, my mom’s an SOB. My Grandpa is always plastered
My Grandma pushes tea My sister wears a mustache
My brother wears a dress Goodness Gracious, that’s why I’m a mess! Yes!
Officer Krupke, you’re really a slob. This boy don’t need a doctor, just a good honest job. Society’s played him a terrible trick
And sociologically he’s sick! I am sick! We are sick, we are sick
We are sick sick sick Like we’re sociologically sick! *Barking and Music* Dear kindly social worker, they say go earn a buck Like be a soda-jerker
Which means like be a smuck It’s not I’m anti-social
I’m only anti-work Gloryosky, that’s why I’m a jerk! Officer Krupke, you’ve done it again This boy don’t need a job, he needs a
Year in the pen It ain’t just a question of misunderstood;

We’re no earthly good Like the best of us is no damn good! Gee, Officer Krupke —
Krup you! *Cheering* Congregations Southeast Whitfield High School led by Elena Sane, I think I speak for everyone when I say you’ve earned this
award. Thank you so much, this means so much to our school and I have to thank
our administrators and our teachers and our parents, especially the Richmond’s
and the Wrights, my husband Matthew and my 3 weirdly awesome children, my mother and
father-in-law, my parents and I got to thank Lori Lynn and Heather, Mikey B, Kiki
and the game and I got to thank the judges. I got to thank the judges because you
know they found the diamond in the rough and that’s awesome,
so keep dreaming everyone! The best piece of career advice I’ve
ever received was from Eddie Griffin and Andrew Dice Clay. Remember him? Hickory
dickory dock? I’ll stop right there they both told me when I asked them after I
came out of the comedy store for the very first time after seeing them
perform and I said I’d like to do what you do and they said just do it and I
said but I’m scared and Andrew Dice Clay said do it scared and that’s what I
live my life by I do it scared. Our next award is presented to this
year’s outstanding performance by a leading actor. In addition to the coveted
Shuler award the winner will also have a chance to compete in the Broadway
League’s National High School Musical Theater Awards in New York City
also known as the Jimmy Awards. Although the Shuler Awards take two does have a
nice ring to it. Here to help me present tonight’s leading Actor Award please
welcome the Shuler Awards Best leading Actor from 2014
Reuben Barksdale. Thank you for joining me Reuben. It was only a few years ago
that you stood on this stage waiting for your name to be called. In your
experience how does a good leading actor affect the overall performance. The good
leading actor is pretty important as you know that’s the backbone of the show so
you know a good leading actor makes a good show, poor leading actor makes not
gonna see a poor show but it makes the cast work a lot harder. Yeah something like that. Thank you now, for the easy part.
Oh and here are your 2019 nominees for outstanding performance by a leading
actor. Off in the distance, there’s a beautiful
horizon gleaming and radiant it’s what I’ll keep
my eyes on as the world turns to face the Sun and start another day, it
suddenly occurs to me that maybe we can find another way. Look at the sky
full of hope and promise, it’s a shining ideal how I real when I
look at the sky. Daily we make them pay their nickels,
dimes, and quarters. Daily we break them because we have to follow orders. And we keep filling money bags broken
lives and dreams but what’s it for I can’t ignore their black immoral
profit-making schemes. Oh look at the sky High above this madness. should be low feel ashamed,
hit my stuff in the name of the sky What if I told you, you could change the
world with just one thought? What if I told you you could be a king. Anything
you desire boy anything on a plate all within your power to create.
I know somewhere in the darkness there is a story meant for me
where I always know exactly what to say I know somewhere some surprising ending
wait for me to tell it, my own way. Be the hero of your story if you can. Be
the champion in the fight not just the man. Don’t depend on other people to put
paper next to pen, be the hero of your story boy
and then you can rise to be the hero once again. Who am I? Can I condemn this man to
slavery? Pretend I do-not feel his agony. Does
innocent who wears my face, who goes to judgment in my place? Who am I?
Can i conceal myself forevermore? Pretend I’m not the man I was before? And must my
name until I die be no more than an alibi? Must I lie? How can I ever face my
fellow men? How can I ever face myself again? My soul belongs to God, I know. I made
that bargain long ago. He gave me hope when hope was gone, he gave me strength to journey on…. Who am I? Who am I? I’m Jean Valjean. I love my job.
I really do and If I say so myself good at it too- I catch the bad guy well most
of the time so it’s a good life, a perfectly good life,
not exactly sublime. When I finished my work and I crawl into
bed, I reflect as I turn out the lights that the day that’s to come, and the week
that’s ahead will be lunch counter mornings and
coffee shop nights. Lunch counter mornings, and coffee shop nights Santa Fe, my old friend. I can’t spend my whole life dreaming.
Though I know thats all I seem inclined to do. I ain’t getting any younger.
And I wanna start brand new. I need space. And fresh air.
Let them laugh in my face. I don’t care. Save my place. I’ll be there. Just be real is all I’m asking.
Not some painting in my head. ‘Cause I’m dead if I can’t count on you today. I got nothing if I ain’t got Santa Fe. So lilo, raven hair, flowing down about to
there. Lets me see her running free and keep your money, that’s enough for me I don’t care bout driving fancy cars, or smoking long buck cigars. No, no not me. All I care about is doing the guy in, whos picking on you. Twisting the wrist thats turning the screw. All I care about is love *Cheering* All right Ruben, you’ve been in their
shoes, tell me how everyone backstage is feeling right now? I’m feeling like wow
that was awesome! One more round of applause for them. Now Ruben, if you will do the
honors and the Shuler goes to Harrison Lewis – Milton High School-Curtains! Thank you so much!
This, uh, I didn’t think I was gonna win. Thank you to everyone involved with
Curtains, the cast and crew everybody, you you made the experience amazing for me.
Mr. Hopkins thank you for your vision. Mr. Bowers, Mr. Jones, all the teachers
who worked on the show, Mr. shreya. thank you to arts bridge for doing this
for us. Theatre is my life, I’m pursuing it with
my life, and this has made a tremendous impact on my life so thank you for that.
Yeah and thank you the nominees you guys are all amazing. Um, thank you so much thank
you to my family, my mom, my dad, my beautiful sister, it, thank you for always
supporting me this is amazing Thank you so much! Hi y’all, it’s Kristin Chenoweth. It’s the 2019 Georgia High School Musical Theatre Awards I believe. I wanted to say congratulations on all of your hard work. If anyone understands, it’s me. Same Moi Also, a peice of advice, just keep fallowing your gut. Train yourself, be ready for anything, and have fun! Let’s take a moment and journey back to
the Jazz Age. It’s New York in 1922 and the modern woman is all the rage.
That’s what Millia Delmont learns when she sips off the bus from Kansas with a
plan all figured out. Step 1: land a job as a secretary of a wealthy businessman
Step 2: Marry him, of course. The rest will figure
itself out. After some toe tapping and soul-searching Milly soon learns that
plans are seldom what they’re cracked up to be and the true love can be planned
in the first place. Performing Thoroughly Modern Millie from the Tony
award-winning musical Thoroughly Modern Millie please welcome your third overall
production nominee this evening Ringgold high school! *Music* There are those,
(There are those) I suppose,
(I suppose) Think we’re mad
(Think we’re mad) Heaven knows
(Heaven knows, Heaven knows) The world has gone to rack and to ruin *Music* What we think is chic, unique, and quite adorable They think is odd and Sodem and Gamorrah-ble! But the fact is
Everything today is thoroughly modern! Check you personality Everthing today makes yesterday slow! Better face reality It’s not insanity says Vanity Fair. In fact, it’s stylish to raise your skirts and bob your hair! Have you seen the way they kiss in the movies? Isn’t it delectible? Painting lips and pencil lining your brow Now it’s quite respectable Goodbye, good-goody girl!
I’m changing, and how! So beat the drums cause here comes thoroughly modern Millie now! *Music* What we think is chic, unique, and quite adorable They think is odd and Sodem and Gamorrah-ble! But the fact is
Everything today is thoroughly modern! Bands are getting jazier Everthing today is starting to go! Cars are getting snazzier Men say it’s criminal what women’ll do
What they’re forgetting is *Music* Goodbye, good-goody girl! I’m changing, and how! I’m changing, and how! So beat the drums cause here comes thoroughly
Hot off the press, one step ahead, jazz age Whoopie baby, we’re so throroughly modern Millie now! *Cheering* As you heard in our opening number the elements of a
theatrical production extend well beyond the performances. Technical execution,
scenic design, lighting, sound, and costumes all play a critical role in any
show. These detail-oriented jobs take a lot of hard work and tonight’s nominees
don’t do it alone. Many of them will gladly tell you about the culture of
teamwork surrounding their positions, where parents, students and other
volunteers constantly roll up their sleeves to get the job done. On this
stage earlier today we honored the top craftspeople across the state of Georgia.
Why don’t you take a look? Tehnical execution And the Shuler Award for technical execution went to: Jan Weing and Emma Durkin North Hall High School: Mama mia! Scenic Design The Shuler award for Scenic Design went to: Rick Caruso

times, I am so excited, I Love New York I love the jimmies,I’m ready! Well things happened so fast, did you forget to thank anybody? I don’t think so.

Georgia students regardless of their ability to pay. If you share our vision

Succeed in Business Without Really Trying follows the meteoric rise of a
window washer turned executive who uses a hand book of the same name to climb
the corporate ladder all the way to the top, complete with all the trials and

better find yourself a good music director, whoa! I found one! Presenting the Shuler award for best musical direction please
welcome the owner of the Forsyth Academy of Performing Arts and music director
for our very own Shuler Awards Lee-anne Kennedy! In a theatrical producation, a music director is in charge of all musical performances. His or her
role is both logical and interpretive as every production presents its own sets
of challenges and every cast has a unique set of strengths and weaknesses.
It’s within these boundaries that the music director works tailoring each
number to make every one sound their best. And here are the nominees for best
musical direction: And the Shuler goes to: Jane Ellis, Ringgold High School, Throughly Modern Millie *Music* Oh my goodness! I’m so honored and
blessed! I have to thank my wonderful husband Patrick and Emery and JC,

educational guide to the world of musical theater. What did you expect? This
is educational programming after all and what kind of educators would we be if we
didn’t expand the curriculum, curriculum with a brand new category? In honor of
the Shuler Awards 11th anniversary we’re recognizing the school that performed
the best, the year’s best, 11 o’clock number. I’m glad you asked! The 11 o’clock
number is that is best described as the big gut punch of a performance that
Wow’s the audience in the second act of the musical. Normally that piece would
fall around 11 o’clock during a typical evening performance. Of course our young
thespians have school tomorrow so just think of it as a second act matinee.
Performing It Only Takes a Moment from Hello Dolly is this year’s Shuler Award
winner for best 11 o’clock number, please welcome St. Vincent’s Academy! *Cheering* Quiet in the Court! Your Honor I didn’t

takes a moment to be loved, a whole life long… Isn’t the world full of wonderful things? I tell you all right now My woman is the greatest work of God on Earth You can talk all you like about the Pyamids or Niagara Falls but they aren’t even in it! You know? Today, I have lost so many things; my job and well, my future, Everything that people think is important, but I dont care!

in which case it’s a given. Here to present the Shuler Award for Best
Supporting Actor please welcome the chief operating officer at Delta
Community Credit Union, Matthew Shepard. The success of a supporting actor lies
in his characters ability to complement the story’s protagonist. That’s not to
say the characters must get long as often is not they don’t. Rather a great
supporting actor crafts his character in a way that credibly influences the
actions of the show’s lead and if he can make a lasting impression on the
audience in the process, all the better. Here are your nominees for best

Fans fairytales and musical theater alike will love our next nominee for Best
Overall production. It all begins with a free-spirited Peter Pan and his fairy
sidekick Tinkerbell. They chase Peters rebellious shadow into the bedroom of
Wendy and her two brothers. With the help of a little fairy dust,
Peter invites these ordinary children on a not so ordinary adventure complete
with pirates, crocodiles, and the land in which children never need to grow up.
Peter Pan is a musical that tickles the imagination and brings out the child in
all of us. Performing I Won’t Grow Up from Peter Pan please welcome your fifth
nominee for Shuler Award for Best Overall production Calhoun High School! *Cheering and Music* Hello I’m Wendy Darling. In Peter’s absence the island of Netherland was unusually quiet but the feeling that
Peter was on his way back the island had again awoken in to life.
The Lost Boys were out looking for Peter, the Pirates were out looking for
the Lost Boys, and the Indians were out looking for the Pirates *Music* Indian! *Music* Alright boys, it’s time for todays lesson. So repeat after me! I won’t grow up,
(I won’t grow up) I don’t want to go to school.
(I don’t want to go to school) Just to learn to be a parrot,
(Just to learn to be a parrot) And recite a silly rule.
(And recite a silly rule) If growing up means
It would be beneath my dignity to climb a tree, I’ll never grow up, never grow up, never grow up
Not me! Not I, Not me! Not me! Never gonna be a man,
I won’t! Like to see somebody try
And make me. Anyone who wants to try
And make me turn into a man, Catch me if you can! I won’t grow up,
(I won’t grow up) I will never even try
(I will never even try) I will do what Peter tells me
(I will do what Peter tells me) And I’ll never ask him why
(And I’ll never ask him why) We won’t grow up!
(We won’t grow up) We will never grow a day
(We will never grow a day) And if someone tries to make it

(No, I promise that I won’t) I will stay a boy forever
(I will stay a boy forever) And be banished if I don’t!
(And be banished if I don’t) And Never Land will always be The home of youth and joy
And liberty I’ll never grow up, never grow up, never grow up Not me! Not us! Not I! Not me! No sir! Not me! *Cheers* Throughout this evening we’ve been
celebrating the seemingly endless list of elements that come together when
creating musical theater and it’s no surprise that the Schumer Awards share
some of those same components many of which you won’t see in our live
broadcast but they are an integral part of the show. For example one of the most
important ingredients for this show upon which we rely every year is the tireless
work of dozens of adjudicators. Our judges who travel across the state to
make sure they get a look at each and every one of our participating schools. Each year 75 schools across the state of Georgia participate in the Shuler Awards
one of the biggest celebrations of high school musical theater in the world.
While only a select few schools get the opportunity to appear on the televised
event, each one is deserving of recognition.
That’s why dozens of adjudicators crisscross the state making sure that
every show is fairly evaluated from craft Awards like lighting and sound, to
standout performances in overall production. It has been an absolute
thrill to be a part of the Shuler Awards. This is my first year and I have been
blown away by not only the talent but the productions that I’ve seen as being
an adjudicator and I only wish this hit existed when I was growing up. Now this was my
very first year the Shuler adjudicator but it was very special for me because
10 years ago, I, along with the rest of a group of very talented musicians from
Alpharetta High School where the recipient of the very first Shuler work
for best orchestra so now to come back a decade later as both an adjudicator and
a Shuler winner and something very fulfilling and full circle for me. The
passion for theater that I had discovered in high school so many that
I’m carry me throughout my entire professional career and I hope it does
the same for you. Being a Shuler judge is amazing because we get to see
everyone’s best work. We’ve seen some beautiful moments this year and thank
you very much for that. I think you only have to look at the variety of
productions in a Shuler season to see that theater is alive and well in our
incredible state. The adjudicators results are then tabulated by the
official accounting firm of the Schuler Awards,
Venna Trasher and securely transferred here to the Cobb Energy Center for the
live event. Arts Bridge Foundation and encourages everyone to get out to your
local high school to see a show as we take this opportunity to congratulate
all of the schools across Georgia that continue to keep the magic of theatre
alive. Here to present the Shuler Award for Best ensemble, please welcome the
regional community empowerment director for Univision Mariano Romero A musical ensemble is made up of the supporting players who fill in the world around a
scenes main action. A good ensemble can blend into the background or prominently
feature. It all depends on what the scene requires. Here are your nominees for Best
ensemble: And the Shuler goes to: Lambert High School, Newsies Thank you so much for this amazing award.
We’re accepting on behalf our entire cast who have put in so much hard work
and dedication to make this show come alive. They have become our family. We

full of life and joy with such a powerful message thank you so much it
means the world. Thank you! It says that our next performers are really nosy. Wait that can’t be right. Wait a minute, it’s says Newsie. Forgive me
the print was smudged, this story takes place a turn of a century when print
publishing is king and the New York News boy is a staple on the New York City
streets. But when big publishing companies suddenly raised distribution
prices teenage newsie Jack Kelly decides enough is enough and leads to
strike worthy of the front page. It’s the type of family-friendly rebellion that
only Disney could write, performing Seize the Day from Newsies please welcome your
sixth overall production nominee Lambert High School! *Cheers and Music* Behold the brave battalion that stands side by side Too few in number and too proud to hide Then say to the others who did not follow through You’re still our brothers, and we will fight for you Now is the time to seize the day Stare down the odds and seize the day Once we’ve begun
If we stand as one Someday become somehow And a prayer becomes a vow And the strike starts right damn now *Music* Now is the time to seize the day They’re gonna see there’s hell to pay Nothing can break us No one can make us quit before we’re done One for all and all for
One for all and all for One for all and all for one *Cheering* Our next award honors the busiest member

chance to earn funding for their school’s theatre departments. Here to
present the award for best overall performance, please welcome the
communications director of the Georgia Lottery Tandy Reddick along with hope

Corporation congratulations to all of you. Now before we announce tonight’s
best overall production Award winner let’s take one more look at the nominees: and the 2019 Shuler
Award for Best Overall production goes to Lambert High School! *Music and cheering* Oh my gosh! What an honor! I just I
want to take a second to thank all my past teachers and directors and
especially my parents because without you guys I would not be here today. And I
want to thank my entire cast and crew and especially um Mr. Watson, Ryan Watson, our music director and Cooper Alice and Chrissy Urbina. Hi I’ve been with this program for all four years of high school and
it’s crazy to see where we began to where we are now so thank you all for
giving us this recognition and allowing us to perform for you tonight. Thank you
so much. Um winning this award is such an honor and I’m so proud of our entire
cast because we all worked so hard and so diligently through a very long
process and I am so proud of us and I’m happy that I got to do it with such
wonderful people, thank you! Thank you! *Cheering* Congratulations and with that the 2019
Schuller Wars is nearing the finale but don’t go anywhere,
our students have one more number to perform. You can call it a showstopper or
the 11 o’clock number if it’s in your time zone, just don’t miss it. But first
I’d like to take a second to thank rts Bridge Foundation for making the 11th
annual Shuler Awards possible. I’d also like to thank my lovely co-host Beth
Keener and of course the wonderful adjudicators with whom there would be no
Shuler Awards. Organizing and executing the performances we enjoy tonight is not
easy as it may seem but these students dug deep and they put in the long
hours because they love musical theater. Win or lose every one of them deserves a
hand for being able to accomplish what they did this year. As you very likely learn tonight
musical theater is anything but a one-person job. It takes countless hours
of rehearsing and adjusting lighting building and sewing to make a production
come together but above all else it takes your support; parents, educators,
volunteers, siblings, friends, and friends of friends, I’m talking to you.
Too often we hear about the financial requirement of the arts and that does
exist but it does in many pursuits but what’s more important is that we spend
our time. Whether we realize it or not every moment you’ve spent helping these
students to learn a line or paint a set is a moment you’ve helped them build a
foundation of joy in their lives. Anyone can write a check and we love checks but
not everyone will spend the most precious resource of all, time out of
their day, to lend a hand and support someone else’s passion so thank you.
Thank you for being here this evening, thank you for listening, and thank you
for your support. You have truly made this year Shuler Awards come alive. *Cheers* *Music* You stumble through your days
Got your head hung low Your skies’ a shade of grey
Like a zombie in a maze You’re asleep inside
