San Jose Stage’s Top Honors Award for an actress was won last night by Hanna Berggren for her performance as Princess Winnifred in Menlo-Atherton High School’s production of Once Upon a Mattress. She will now compete in the National High School Musical Theatre Awards on Broadway (a.k.a. The JIMMY Awards), which will take place June 20-26, 2012 in New York City. The winners of The JIMMY Awards will be awarded a scholarship to NYU’s Tisch School for the Arts upon acceptance. “We are so proud of Hanna and her phenomenal work,” said M-A drama teacher D. J. Zwicker-Sobrepena.
