Charlotte Movizzo and Curtis Salinger, Colorado’s 2016 Bobby G Awards winners, were invited to sing the National Anthem at the Denver Outlaws‘ professional lacrosse victory over the Atlanta Blaze on July 16. It also happened to be “Star Wars Night” at Mile High Stadium, hence the appearance of stormtroopers. The Bobby G Awards celebrate outstanding achievement in high-school musical theatre. Salinger and Movizzo were named Outstanding Actor and Actress. The rehearsal pianist and anthem arranger was Martha Yordy.
