‘Les Miz’ takes top state honors in Colo.
Emma Buchanan and Evatt Salinger perform songs from their award-winning musical “Les Misérables” in a medley at the Buell Theatre in Denver. They won Outstanding Performance by an Actress and Actor in a Leading Role in the statewide competition and will travel to New York City at the end of the month to represent Colorado in the National High School Musical Theatre Awards in New York City.
Emma Buchanan sings her solo as Eponine from “Les Misérables” at the Bobby G Awards at the Buell Theatre in Denver, which she had to sing two keys lower than normal for it to fit in a medley. Buchanan was named the Outstanding Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role at the awards. She will now compete in the nationals in New York City.

Evatt Salinger, right, performs “Bring Him Home” from “Les Misérables” on Thursday night at the Buell Theatre in Denver. His number came after "Luck be a Lady," so he hammed it up a bit before taking the song to a more serious level. Salinger was awarded Outstanding Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role at the Bobby G Awards and will now represent the state at the national Jimmy Awards in New York City.
Kristen Winchester-White, who directed the Durango High School production of "Les Misérables" accepts the Outstanding Overall Production of a Musical on behalf of International Troupe 1096 at the Bobby G Awards on Thursday night at the Buell Theatre in Denver. “It was truly a community effort to get us here,” she said.

The DHS performance beat out productions from much larger and arts-magnet schools in its first appearance at the awards.
