Emmaus High School is among a record number of 30 schools that will be participating in the State Theatre's 2012 Freddy Awards, which is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year.
The State Theatre on Wednesday released the list of participating schools, including for the first time, Nazareth High School.
EHS will present its musical production, "Guys and Dolls," on April 11, 12, 13, 14 and 15 at the high school, 500 Macungie Ave.
The Freddy Awards recognizes accomplishments in the production and performance of musical theater in high schools in Lehigh and Northampton counties, as well as Warren County, N.J.
In 2011, EHS students were nominated for 16 awards for its production of "Phantom of the Opera."
A list of the participating schools, along with their productions and performance dates, is available at www.freddyawards.org, and can also be accessed through the Freddy Awards iPhone application, available for free at iTunes.
The program will culminate on Thursday, May 24, in a three-hour televised awards ceremony from the State Theatre.
