Congratulations to the cast, crew and orchestra of Hampton High School’s recent production of “Damn Yankees” for winning four Gene Kelly awards at the May 26 ceremony, held at the Benedum Center in Pittsburgh.
Hampton won in the following categories:
- Best Scenic Design (Budget Level II)
- Best Costume Design (Budget Level II)
- Best Ensemble

The production had received nine nominations -- the most number of nominations a Hampton production has ever received.
