Price won Best Actress in a Leading Role for her performance as Alice Murphy in WSHS’ fall musical, “Bright Star.” The production was also nominated for Outstanding Ensemble and Best Musical Production. She will travel to New York City this summer to compete on the national level for the 2022 Jimmy Awards® against other regional winners from across the country.
