Sunday, May 27, 2012:  All of northeastern and central Pennsylvania is treated to the awards ceremony and performances on WNEP2.  Airtime is:  8:00pm.


When high school students hit the stage across our area, the audience hushes, the curtain rises, and the lights go up.  As the show begins, the butterflies turn to excitement and the scene comes alive!  The students, through a whole host of theatrical resources, will evoke joy, sadness, excitement and most of all awe.

In central Pennsylvania, excellence on stage is recognized in the form of the Ray of Light Awards, presented by the Community Theatre League of Williamsport.

The goal of the awards: recognizing the efforts of area schools while honoring the memory of a man who made theatre a major part of his life, Mr. Ray Phillips.

You will see samples of musicals and learn who won the Ray of Light in 18 different categories, and the coveted Ray Phillips Memorial Award.

Come out to the Community Arts Center, then watch it all over again on WNEP2.
