June 13, 2017

Stillwater Area High School senior Mary Burchill has been named a Triple Threat Award winner by the Hennepin Theatre Trust. Burchill was recognized by the Trust’s Spotlight Education program for her singing, acting and dancing as well as community leadership. Burchill was among four winners - two female and two male - who were given an all-expense paid trip to New York City to meet with industry professionals, participate in workshops and attend Broadway shows.

Burchill was chosen to perform this week at the Spotlight Showcase at the historic State Theater in Minneapolis. The showcase highlights the hard work and talents of 1,400 of the state’s finest musical theatre students and programs with live performances and honors including the Triple Threat Award announcements. Schools and students are also recognized for excellence in categories including individual performance, overall productions and technical achievement. Burchill and Stillwater's Stone Weidner each won an individual award for Outstanding Performance in a lead role for their roles in the SAHS production Pippin. Stillwater also won Outstanding Student Orchestra, Outstanding Technical Crew and Outstanding A/V Board Operators.
