The Senior School fall play, Puffs, received eight nominations in the Third Annual Prime Stage High School Drama Awards, including a nomination for Best Overall Production. Winners will be announced at an awards ceremony on April 24 at the New Hazlett Theater Center for the Performing Arts in Pittsburgh. The SSA nominations include:
- Best Overall Production: Shady Side Academy Senior School, Puffs

- Best Supporting Actress: Junior Kayla Zhu
- Best Student Stage Manager: Senior Ayli Davidson

The Prime Stage High School Drama Awards are designed to reward excellence in high school drama for non-musical productions: one act or full length. The production must be completely student run, and each student must be directly responsible for that department’s activities. Because all positions involved in producing a stage production are important, award categories include both backstage and onstage roles.
Congratulations to our nominees, the entire cast and crew of Puffs, and Senior School Performing Arts Chair Dek Ingraham. Good luck in the awards!
