Farmington High School students will perform in the Tenth Annual SpotLight Showcase, held on two nights on at 7 p.m. on both Sunday, June 14 and Monday, June 15 at the Orpheum Theatre. SpotLight is the Hennepin Theatre Trust’s premier education initiative which supports and honors Minnesota high school musical theater students and programs that produce annual musicals. 

This past fall, 42 schools presented musicals and a group of evaluators assessed each school’s production. They submitted nominations for categories including outstanding performance in leading, supporting and featured roles; outstanding performance by a chorus, dance ensemble and student orchestra; outstanding overall performance of a musical, and outstanding overall production of a musical. Shows are not compared or ranked against each other, so categories may have multiple honorees. 

Farmington High School presented Urinetown: the Musical on November 14, 15, 16, 21, 22 and for its achievements is receiving the following honors:

Outstanding Overall Performance
