Kalee George, a Baldwin High School senior, shows off the broom she helped to make for her costume in this year’s musical, in which George plays the witch.

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.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
