Tommy Tunes Award Performance
The Carver Theatre Department attended the Tommy Tune Awards Tuesday and represented Aldine ISD well!  Ri'Chard Jordan won Best Supporting Actor for his role as Jack the Bear/Buddy Bolden in Jelly's Last Jam!  The troupe was nominated for awards in the following categories: Best Musical, Best Direction, Best Choreography/Musical Staging, Musical Direction, Leading Actor, Supporting Actor, Featured Performer, Ensemble/Chorus, Orchestra, Costume Design and Stage Crew/Technical Execution.  We also competed in the UIL One Act Play Region contest last week and received Region II State Alternate which makes us part of the top 12 schools in Conference 6A.  In the past 7 years, Carver has advanced to region 6 times and has received State Alternate 4 times. 
Forty-five Houston area schools participated in the Tommy Tunes and only a select amount of schools were nominated for awards in fifteen categories and less than that were awarded.  As a best musical nominee, the troupe performed "That's How You Jazz" from Jelly's Last Jam.  Bishop Pearsall and Ri'Chard Jordan along with nominees in the best and supporting actor categories performed in the opening number of the awards.   Bishop also performed in the leading actor medley along with the other 8 nominees in his category. Kirby Jackson and Jazmyne Charles performed in the Finale number of the ceremony along with students from other 44 schools.  Special thanks to Mr. Watkins, Ms. Brown, Mr. Rodriguez, Mr. Hill, Mr. Cobb and all the faculty & staff who supported us along the journey! You're simply the best!  Thanks as always for your support!!!!
