During the program, Ava Faruol ’24 and Andrew Martin ’23 took the stage to perform “The Sign” from the School’s Cyrano de Burger Shack, one of the evening’s Best Musical nominees.

Canterbury had received an amazing 20 nominations out of 44 categories in the prestigious HALO Awards program, which honors students from 80+ Connecticut high schools for excellence in theater.

Keiko was delighted with the accomplishments of all the theater students from Canterbury. “We could not be prouder of the students who attended the exciting awards with us and represented our School so well,” she said.

Bravo, Saints!
