Sky Ring for her performance as Dogberry in MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING, and Sarah Russell for her turn as Mayella in TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD.
I agree with Dennis Sparks' choice and their drama teacher's (Battle Ground Drama Club's instructor Stephen "Cash" Henry) comments who said, "Both immensely deserved, and I am ridiculously proud of both of them."
According to Henery they were the only two high school students awarded a Sparkle Award of any kind this year [though I felt Ashlee Waldbauer for Robin Hood is deserving as well] and some of the other winners worked with companies like: The Oregon Shakespeare Festival, NW Classical Theater, Beaverton Civic Theater, Portland Actors Conservatory, Portland Center Stage, Artists Repertory Theatre, Post 5 Theater, Profile Theater, Oregon Children's Theater, NW Children's Theater and Triangle Productions.
WAY TO GO SARAH AND SKY!
