For the fifth year, the Town of Huntington sent out its secret judges to all of the high school productions –musicals and plays – throughout the township that students and staff work day in and day out to produce, perform and promote. That process culminated on Tuesday night with the annual Hunting-Tony awards show at the John W. Engeman Theater in Northport

More than 50 nominees representing the nine high schools of the Town of Huntington descended upon the theater for a night of laughs, smiles, performances and – perhaps most importantly – awards as hosted by Huntington Councilmembers Susan Berland and Mark Cuthbertson.

“The dedication required to participate in these productions represents hours of time throughout the school year,” Berland said in a press release. “As a supporter of the arts, I am proud to be part of an event that highlights and awards the talented youth within our Town and I am truly inspired by their work.”

Cuthbertson thanked Engeman Theater Managing Director Kevin O’Neill and Producing Artistic Director Richard Dolce for allowing the fifth annual Hunting-Tony awards to be hosted at the Northport theater.

“I also want to thank all of the high school teachers, staff and students for all of the time and effort that they put into each and every one of these shows,” he added.
