The musical, “Wonderland: Alice’s Rock and Roll Adventure,” recently debuted at BSM. Receiving high praise from the student body, the musical itself also received a Spotlight Award. Awarded to the show as a whole, and any actors and actresses that stood out, the Spotlight Award is determined by two judges who watch the show.

The overall performance received an Outstanding designation, as did the ensemble performance, the dance performance of the ensemble, and the A/V board operators. The cast and crew also received Honorable Mentions for an Achievement in Musical Theater, the overall production, the acting performance of the ensemble, and the overall technical team.

Awarded by the Hennepin Theater Trust, BSM had three individual Spotlight Award winners: junior Brielle Backer as Alice, senior Leo Driessen as the Mad Hatter, and junior Maddie Schafer as Felicity.  Students who received Honorable Mentions  were seniors Ty Hansen as the White Rabbit and Josie Ross as the Caterpillar.

Not only could actors in this musical receive a Spotlight Award, but they could also have signed up to attempt to get the Triple Threat Award. As the name entails, the Triple Threat Award relates to the candidate being able to do three things: acting, singing, and dancing. Seniors Maddie Turk and Brielle Baker were semi-finalists for this award, and senior Carson Knoer is a finalist. “It is called the ‘Triple Threat Top Ten.’ From these 20 students, 4 students will win an all-expense paid trip to New York to see Broadway shows & learn with professionals,” Knoer said.

On June 12, the cast will perform a short medley of songs from the show at the Spotlight Showcase; this will be held at the State Theatre. Also, the winners of the Triple Threat Award will be revealed.
