Post Crescent: A student from Kimberly High School and another from Green Bay East High School were the big winners Saturday at the second-ever Center Stage High School Musical Theater Awards at the Fox Cities Performing Arts Center.
Travis Vandenberg, a senior at Kimberly, won Best Actor and Paige Neumeyer, a senior at Green Bay East, won Best Actress. They’ll both travel to New York City in June to represent Center Stage at the National High School Musical Theatre Awards (aka the Jimmy Awards).
They will take part in intensive coaching and rehearsals before performing at the 25th annual show at the Minskoff Theatre. A panel of judges will then choose an actor and an actress to bestow with a Jimmy Award as the nation’s top performers.
