Charlotte, NC, February 25, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- Teen City Stage is proud to announce that their Team Broadway program won 40 awards at the Musical Theatre Competitions of America (MTCA) in Anaheim California on February 6, 7, and 8. Team Broadway’s 45 participating middle and high school students, representing 16 different schools from around the Charlotte area, placed in solo and duet categories, and won First Place in both Revue and Advanced Ensemble group categories for High School, and Second Place for the Middle School Revue.
The group included nine scholarship students who were able to participate thanks to contributions from generous donors to the program. Teen City Stage is committed to making Arts Education available to all, and gifts to our MTCA Scholarship Fund helped students who could not normally afford to participate at competition in California, experience and learn from this amazing opportunity.
Team Broadway also won the Sweepstakes Awards for MS and HS Divisions which is given to the group receiving the highest average score from their top scoring entries in 3 categories – one entry must be in Revue or Ensemble.
First Place finishers were Thomas Laub and Katherine Cherok Senior Duet; Libby Hatfield and Ava Smith Freshman/Sophomore Duet; Maya Grace Buckner and Lauder Fuhrmann 8th Grade Duet; Meg Crosbie and Charli Head 7th Grade Duet; Carlyn Head, Rixey Terry 8th Grade Solo; Sophie Teague 7th Grade Solo; Libby Hatfield Sophomore Solo; Samantha Rockhill Junior Solo; Thomas Laub Senior Solo.
Rixey Terry also won Triple Threat Award in a MS Musical Revue and Anna Hertel won Triple Threat Award in a HS Advanced Ensemble.
“We are so proud of all our Team Broadway members,” said Lori Anne Sword, Artistic Director and Founder of Team Broadway. She added “whether they came back with a trophy or not, the adjudication process at MTCA is so constructive that they brought home something even more important – growth as a performer.”
