Elizabethtown Area High School’s fall production of “The Man Who Came to Dinner” landed four nominations for the 2019 Hershey Theater Apollo Awards. Senior Ryan Kruft and sophomore Emma Buettner have been nominated for outstanding supporting actor and actress respectively while juniors Claire Fritz and Carter Rutkowski have been nominated for outstanding lead actress and actor respectively.
High schools in Cumberland, Dauphin, Lebanon, and Perry counties were eligibleto receive nominations. The Elizabethtown Area School District was also
invited to participate due to its proximity to Hershey itself. Independent evaluators representing the Hershey Theater Apollo Awards attended each school’s production to gather the list of nominees. The awards focus solely on the performances of the young people, honoring their acting, singing, and dancing abilities.
A Tony Awards-inspired ceremony will be held in May at the Hershey Theatre. In addition to the winners for both fall plays and spring musicals being announced, the production will feature performances by the casts, crews, and orchestra members from the local schools.
