Congratulations go out to the cast and crew of Obama’s production of “The Wiz” after being named Best Musical in the big budget category for the 2014 Gene Kelly Awards. Obama sophomore Marnie Quick also won Best Actress for her role as The Tin Man, and Josh Scherrer was named as a recipient of a $2000 college scholarship.

The Kelly Awards are essentially western Pennsylvania’s “Tony Awards” for high school musicals. Winning such honors is no easy feat and speaks to the dedication and professionalism of the entire cast and crew. Winners were named Memorial Day weekend.
