Seven Angels Theatre Presents the 9th annual Halo Awards for Excellence in High School Theatre
It’s like the Tony Awards for Broadway only these awards celebrate excellence in High School theatre in Connecticut. Seven Angels Theatre in Waterbury will present their prestigious Halo awards on Wednesday, May 30, at the Palace Theater on East Main Street in Waterbury. At 6 PM nominees will have a red carpet entry to the pre-show reception with the awards following at 7 PM.

Who will win the Gypsy Robe this year? This is an award given to someone who “performs” brilliantly behind the scenes, making sure that the play is a success. This year’s Gypsy Robe will be on display before the awards ceremony in the lobby of The Palace Theater.
