Congratulations Marla!

Congratulations to Marla Louissaint, winner of the 2015 National High School Musical Theatre Awards (also known as the Jimmy Awards)! Marla was featured as Queen Xerilla, the intergalactic environmentalist, in last summer's production of Jimmy!: A Musical Fable with Almost No Historical Basis, so it's extremely apropos that she walked away from the ceremony at the Minskoff Theatre on Broadway with the Jimmy Award. She was competing against her peers from across the nation and won the award for her stirring performance as Caroline in Beacon High School's Caroline, or Change (directed by NTSA board member Jo Ann Cimato).

Check her out in her musical medley at the Jimmy Awards. She starts singing around 6:30!
