“The Little Mermaid” costume crew gets award nomination

Archbishop Carroll Theater Society’s costume crew was nominated for a Philadelphia Independence Award after its first year entering the competition.

Four ACTS students were recognized for their student designs. Christina Cortese created Se

bastian, Amanda Valentin created the sailors, Luciana Perez created Flotsam and Jetsam and Kadie Kutlus created Flounder. The award ceremony will take place on May 10 at Temple University Performing Art Center.

Many members of the ACTS cast and crew were happy about the news.

“It was by far the best costume I’ve ever worn on stage,” said senior Isis Holt. “Luciana did a fantastic job on both mine and Kadé’s costumes and it deserves all of the recognition they are getting.”

Freshman John Doherty agreed.

“My costume was one of the best parts of the show,” said Doherty. “I’m very grateful for all of the praise and recognition it got, on and off stage.”

The costume director, Mrs. Sarah Fickling, expressed her pride in the costume crew.

“I worked alongside each of these costume designs and I am incredibly proud of all of them,” said Mrs. Fickling. “Every person in the costume crew deserves this award and I hope for just as much success next year!”

The Philadelphia Independence Awards is a local organization that supports high school musical theater programs. Any high school within a 20-mile radius of City Hall, Philadelphia is qualified to apply for the award. More than 20 local schools were nominated.

During the first weekend of the spring show “The Little Mermaid,” judges for the competition were in the audience watching the show. The judges provided their notes for ACTS to use for improvement.
