Port Chester High School students who participated in the spring musical were nominated for Metropolitan Youth Theater Awards.

Students received two acting/singing Metro nominations for their performances and one aesthetics-based nomination.

The annual Metro Awards highlight high school students' talents during the spring musical season, and honor their hard work. This year, 56 schools entered from Westchester, Rockland, Putnam and Bergen counties.

“I am so proud of the entire cast and crew,” said teacher and play producer Stephanie Darrow. “I am so pleased that the Metro judges took notice of our comedic accomplishments. Lauren, Nick and Faith brought the house down every night. Congratulations to everyone!”
