Auburn Riverside High School received a pair of special honors for its two stage productions at the sixth annual 5th Avenue High School Musical Theatre Awards at Seattle’s Benaroya Hall on Monday night.

The school was awarded for its outstanding work by an ensemble cast in “Working” and for educational impact in its rendition of “Children of Eden.”

Thomas Jefferson High School’s Isaiah Parker was awarded outstanding performance by an actor in a supporting role. Parker played the Scarecrow in the school’s production of “The Wiz.”

Woodinville High School walked away with three awards, including outstanding overall musical. Kentlake, Kentridge, Lewis and Clark, Olympia and Stanwood high schools received two awards each.

About 2,200 high school students, teachers and parents from across Washington state packed Benaroya Hall for the program, sponsored by Wells Fargo.

TVW will broadcast awards ceremony, in its entirety, on Wednesday at 8 p.m. and again Sunday at 1 p.m. After June 11, the event may be viewed as streaming video at www.tvw.org.
