Raytown South High School student Allison Deshotels received a Starlight Theatre Blue Star Award nomination in the Outstanding Ensemble Member category for her role as Mrs. Squires in The Music Man.

“In every role Allison works very hard to create unique and interesting characters her audiences to enjoy,” said Raytown South High theatre program director Brent Martin. “She understands the importance of both large and small roles, and even in an ensemble of 40+ students she is able to stand out without becoming distracting.”

Starlight Theatre’s annual Blue Star Awards recognize achievement and excellence in musical theatre among Kansas City area high school students.

The director of the Raytown South High School theatre program is Brent Martin.
