Those stellar handmade costumes, orchestra performances and crew and technical executions during Baldwin High School's performance of “Shrek: The Musical” led to three Gene Kelly Award nominations for the show this year.

Baldwin's performance of “Shrek: The Musical,” performed from April 9 to 12, was one of 20 high school shows from across the region nominated to receive one or more nominations in the Pittsburgh Civic Light Opera's 24th annual Gene Kelly Awards.

Baldwin's “Shrek” was nominated for best costume design, budget category III; best all-student orchestra and best crew/technical execution.

The CLO began the Gene Kelly Awards for Excellence in High School Musicals in 1991 to recognize and encourage student achievement and to focus the attention of the community and school districts on the importance of musical theater and arts education.

Patterned after Broadway's Tony Awards, the awards program honors singer, actor, dancer, choreographer and director Gene Kelly.
