In response to the tragedy at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School last month, two drama students, Sawyer Garrity and Andrea Pena, wrote the song Shine, which deals with triumphing over adversity. The song was released on iTunes and proceeds will go to a nonprofit organization called #ShineMSD, to help students by healing through the arts. The Carbonell Awards Board of Directors has invited the students to perform, as they exemplify the mission of the Carbonell Awards: honoring the creative artists of today and tomorrow.

About the Carbonell Awards

The Carbonell Awards fosters the artistic growth of professional theater in South Florida by celebrating the diversity of our theater artists, providing educational scholarships, and building audience appreciation and civic pride by highlighting achievements of our theater community. Over 25 professional theater companies in Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties participate in the awards process every year. Each season volunteer panelists and judges choose nominees and recipients from hundreds of shows produced on our area stages. In addition, The Carbonell Awards celebrate the accomplishments of our artistic leaders by presenting 'Special Awards' and show our dedication to the next generation of artists and journalists by awarding scholarships. Along with New York's Drama Desk and Chicago's Joseph Jefferson Awards, the Carbonell Awards are among the nation's senior regional arts awards and predate others, including Washington, D.C.'s Helen Hayes Awards. The Carbonell Awards are named after Manuel Carbonell, an internationally-renowned sculptor, who designed the original solid bronze and marble award in 1976.
