As an official photographer for the 2015 Freddy Awards, I get asked a lot what are the Freddy Awards. The best way I can describe it is it’s the Tony Awards for High School theatre.
Thousands of photos are created each year when all the schools get together to rehearse and celebrate theatre together.
Below is a video slide show of some of my favorite images from 2015 Freddy Awards:

A gallery featuring photographs from the 2015 Freddy Awards will be opening at the State Theatre for the Arts in Easton, PA on Friday April 8, 2016. This show will showcase Dave Dabour’s best photographs from the 2015 Freddy Awards. The gallery is open to the public and a show ticket is not required for entry. Metered street parking is available as well as a nearby parking garage that offers a courtesy shuttle to the theater.
Dave is an award winning photographer that has been photographing theatre for many years. The FREDDY© Awards program recognizes and rewards exceptional accomplishments in the production and performance of musical theatre in local high schools in eastern PA and western NJ. The 3-hour LIVE broadcast includes a stellar opening number, performances by nominated musicals, actors and actresses, and presentation of the FREDDY© Awards in 21 award categories. It is the only high school musical awards program in the nation that produces a live television show. The telecast has received numerous broadcast awards, including Mid-Atlantic EMMYs in 2005 & 2011. Dave and another photographer capture the event with photographs of the rehearsals for the show and the actual live performance.
The gallery will be open on show nights 90 minutes before a show starts from April 1th – July 9th 2016. Check the Theater’s web site www.statetheatre.org for show information or contact Dave at firstname.lastname@example.org or (908) 995-7273 for more information.
The “Blue” Circus train passed through town today and you probably didn’t notice. That’s because most of us don’t pay too much attention to trains as they go by. The circus train typically only goes by once a year. This year it’s the “blue” train going west bound on their way to Norfolk, VA.
I’m not an expert on this but I believe this is the last time the circus elephants are on the train and in the circus. They are going to be offloaded and “retired” during this scheduled break
