MHS receives statewide recognition for drama production
By Hub City Times staff
MARSHFIELD – Marshfield High School’s production of “Anything Goes” is being recognized with three statewide awards. The school has received three Jerry Awards, formerly known as Tommy Awards, which recognize, encourage, and honor excellence in high school musical theater.
Zach Iniguez has received a Jerry Award for Outstanding Leading Performance for his portrayal of Moonface Martin. Jasmine Fredrick has received the Spirit Award, chosen by her peers. Director Amanda Leurquin has received a Jerry Award for Outstanding Direction.
Only 30 male performers and 30 female performers are selected out of 89 schools in the program, so Leurquin says this is definitely an honor for her students.
In addition, Iniguez, Tyler Meyer, and Tyler Nanstad will perform as part of the Jerry Awards Ensemble, an elite group of performers selected back in December to perform across the state. Their final performance is at the Jerry Awards Ceremony on June 10 at the Overture Center for the Arts in Madison.
Officials recently announced the program has been renamed The Jerry Awards for local philanthropist and arts supporter W. Jerome Frautschi.
