I just have to brag a bit.
Here in Houston area we have our own version of the Tony awards. Tommy Tune, a Houston native, started The Tommy Tune Awards for outstanding achievement in high school musicals. Between 30 and 40 area high schools compete each year in several categories. This year my daughter's high school performed "Peter Pan". It was a major production and we even "flew" the main characters. We got the equipment from the same company that handled the Broadway show.
We just got the word that we have been nominated for Best Costume Design!!!! We also have been nominated for Best Scenic Design, Best Lighting Design, Best Orchestra, Best Director, and one of our guys got nominated for Best Supporting Actor.
My daughter is Head Costumes and was in charge of making all the costumes used. I did put in many volunteer hours helping also. We are especially proud of the fact that we did not rent or purchase a single costume used in the show. The only thing we did purchase was the hat that Captain Hook wore. Apparently we did such a good job that the judges were going to discount costumes because they thought we had rented all of them. According to the rules, you can't rent more than 30% of the costumes used in the production. They were amazing to find out that we had done it all ourselves!
Thank you for letting me brag on my daughter's achievements.
