A Verona High School actor has been nominated for the Paper Mill Playhouse’s “Rising Star” award.

Faith Brolly has been nominated for outstanding performance in a female-identified supporting role for her work as Janis Sarkisian in the VHS production of “Mean Girls.”

“Faith has done amazing work on the VHS stage, taking on a fantastic array of characters, from comic to tragic, along with everything in-between,” said Steven Munoz, director of the Spotlight Players and a drama, English and theater arts teacher at VHS. “It is incredible to see her recognized for her work, especially as Janis, for Faith has remained committed to being her best self both on and off the stage during her time here. She embodies Janis’s ethos of being true to yourself above all else and expressing yourself most freely through art.” (Brolly is pictured above with her “Mean Girls” co-stars Aidan Azarowicz and Eva Lalonde.)

Modeled after the Tony awards, the Paper Mill’s Rising Star awards were created in 1996 to recognize performances New Jersey in high school musicals. Broadways star Anne Hathaway earned a Rising Star award for her acting at Millburn High School.

This year’s Rising Stars ceremony will be at the Paper Mill on Tuesday, June 11. Brolly will be majoring in film and television at Montclair State University in the fall.
