The year is 2020 – the year without the Freddy Awards. Or sort of. Because of the CoronaVirus quarantine, many schools were not able to perform their high school musicals.That would make it unfair to compare them to one another.
But that doesn’t mean I can’t go back into my archives to relive some of the great moments I’ve experienced since I’ve been photographing them since 2013.
There’s so much to love about the Freddy Awards. The excitement of being in the audience during the live awards is indescribable. The love of theatre and energy in the air is unmeasurable.
I always love action photos and there are plenty to choose from
There’s the special unexpected moments….
And the special guests
The awards show make it all look easy but there are days and hours of rehearsals…
And the special moments the kids really enjoy!
Did I mention the fantastic lighting? Yep we got that too.
There’s alumni that come back on a regular basis and visit the show
And so many kids, happy to be there. How they all fit on the stage at once is a miracle at times
Put it all together and you have some fantastic moments captured for a lifetime of enjoyment.
I have all of my Freddy Awards photography on my website for viewing and purchase at https://www.dabourphotography.com/Freddy-Awards from 2013 to last year. Sadly there will be no photos from this year. Keep your fingers crossed and prayers for next year.
I invite you to tune into WFMZ tonight at 7 pm to relive memories of past Freddy Awards and scholarship presentations. The broadcast will also be streamed online at http://www.wfmz.com
Here are some additional memories to enjoy. Many, many more on my website!
