History of the Halo Awards:

Seven Angels Theatre High School Halo Awards initiative is the largest program of its kind in Connecticut.

In 1993, Artistic Director Semina DeLaurentis created the Seven Angels Theatre High School Halo Awards, a program that celebrated high school theatre in the Greater Waterbury Region. The program included 8 schools and the ceremony was held at Seven Angels Theatre. Over the years, the program grew too large to be held at Seven Angels and eventually transferred to the Palace Theatre in Downtown Waterbury. The program has grown from one night of awards to two nights of awards and is now the powerhouse that is it with three nights of awards and nearly 90 participating high schools from all eight Connecticut counties.

Production Detail Form

Why do I need to fill this out?

The Production Detail Form is our way to navigate the technical side of nominations.

How much detail do I need to provide?

We recommend at least a sentence or two describing what your students accomplished. The more detail, the better!

Is there a penalty for not filling out the Production Detail Form?

Yes! Since the form will be readily available online for all teachers, directors, producers (starting September 1, 2022), failure to fill out the form and return it a week before your opening night will result in zero technical nominations.

That seems like a steep penalty, don’t ya think?

We found that without the PDF being submitted prior to the first show, there were some inaccuracies when evaluating the production
