Congratulations to Tyler Law and Julia Graff, the 2014 recipients of the Gold Star Award for Excellence in Musical Theater! Both recipients of this year’s awards have participated in multiple musicals during their high school years.
Julia Graff has been a constant presence in the PHS Musical Pit Orchestra. She has played the clarinet for three out of four musicals, and even took on learning to play percussion just to be part of the Footloose pit. She further illustrated her talents by serving as this year’s student conductor of what became the third consecutive Hershey Apollo Award Nominated Student Orchestra.
Tyler Law has been recognized by multiple Apollo Award nominations. In addition, his hard-working nature, his ability to be the true definition of a cast leader, and his dedication to improving his craft that has won him this award. He will be continuing this study as an assistant stage manager of Mt. Gretna Theater during the summer of 2014.
