EASTON, Pa. - Another Freddy Awards ceremony is in the books, and lots of students from all over the region are going home with some new hardware. There were 21 categories, and hundreds of students who were hoping to hear their name called.
It's a night of glitz and glamour, starting with an opening number that gives Broadway a run for its money. The first surprise of the night came along with the first individual Freddy of the night.

From the Phantom of the Opera, to the streets of Paris, the night was about honoring the best in high school musical theatre.
There were 30 high schools and no lack of personality or vocal talent.
