Chatham High School Theatre won a number of awards from the STANJ/Governor's Awards competition at Rutgers this past Saturday.

"You Can't Take It With You" earned fourth place Scene, with Lilly McGrath winning Best Actress for her role as Alice Sycamore. Natalie Miggins also was named a finalist in Dramatic Monologue.

Several pairs also garnered recognition. Liz Stuart and Mikey Behr won first place Improvisational Pairs, and Charlie Thomson and Colin Walsh won first place Comedic Pairs. Eitan Miller and Adi Roy won sixth place for Dramatic Pairs.

“I am so incredibly proud of the CHS Theatre students," Laura Russo, CHS Theatre teacher, said. "They spent hours rehearsing and preparing for this year's competition. We competed against 25 schools--most much larger than ours--and still managed to win three of the seven Governor's Awards. That's a huge accomplishment.”
