Adam Kral, a rising senior at Houston Christian High School, won the 2019 Tommy Tune Best Actor Award for his role as Bert in Houston Christian’s Mary Poppins. This award is given by TUTS to the best actor in a Houston-area high school musical, and it nominated him for the same award on a national scale – the Jimmy Awards. The 11th Annual Jimmy Awards was held at the Minskoff Theater in New York City; 43 cities sent a best actor and a best actress, and the students all performed in a talent showcase, hosted this year by Ben Platt. The students are treated to a 10-day training program where they work with Broadway directors, musicians, choreographers, composers, casting agents and producers. Adam won the 2019 Spirit of the Jimmys Award. This award was given to only one student and was voted on by all of the students.

Adam is looking forward to performing in the role of Bobby Child in Houston Christian's production of Crazy for You next February.
