Neither North Lincoln nor Lincolnton won any of the Blumey Awards handed out in Charlotte Sunday night (May 17th) but North Lincoln did get to perform a scene from their production of "Into the Woods" before a sold-out crowd at the Belk Theater one of three contenders for the “Wells Fargo Best Musical” award in Tier One (productions with budgets of less than $10,000).   
North Lincoln High School's drama department had received three nominations, Lincolnton High School had received one, but none of the Lincoln County nominees won Blumey Awards when they were announced Sunday night (May 17th) at the fourth annual Blumenthal Performing Arts Center in Charlotte.

Winners in a dozen categories were announced at the Belk Theater and Wells Fargo Best Musical nominees including the group from North Lincoln performed live on stage.

Kings Mountain High School won the Tier 1 Wells Fargo Best Musical Award for their production of “Little Shop of Horrors.”

Ardrey Kell High School from Mecklenburg County won the Tier 2  Best Musical Award for it’s production of “42nd Street.” Obviously a big budget production has a better chance of getting awards--Ardrey Kell took home six of the Blumeys total.

Lauren Hunkele of Northwest Cabarrus High School won Best Actress for her portrayal of Jo March in “Little Women.” Justin Norwood of South Point High School won Best Actor for his portrayal of Radames in “Aida.”

Twenty-one high schools in the Charlotte region were nominated for Blumey Awards in at least one of the categories, and students from another six schools received top 20 recognition in the Best Actor or Best Actress categories. Schools represented were from Lincoln, Cleveland, Gaston, Cabarrus, Iredell, Mecklenburg, Union Counties in NC and York County, SC.
