The high school theatre arts spring musical, "Cinderella" has been nominated in four categories for the prestigious annual Jerry Herman Awards, a celebration in achievement and excellence in high school musical theatre. "Cinderella" was nominated for best set design, best lighting design, best production, and junior Jake Mouchawar was nominated for best supporting actor. The award ceremony takes place at the Hollywood Pantages Theatre on Monday, June 5. The two leads, Elizabeth Sams (Cinderella) and Tim Frangos (Prince Topher) will perform the opening number for Oaks Christian at the Pantages.

Furthermore, all participating schools are given an opportunity to send a leading man and leading lady to audition before a panel of judges who determine the winners for best actor and best actress. Sams and Frangos will audition before the panel for a chance to win those categories and represent Los Angeles at the National High School Musical Theatre Awards. Winners of those awards can then compete in the Jimmy Awards in New York City and perform on a Broadway stage.
