The November 2010 production of the “Les Miserables” musical by students at George Mason High School was honored this week with an American Prize, one of a series of such honors presented at high school, college and professional levels. It was named No. 1 in the U.S. as a high school musical theater performance, starring Sam Waters in the lead role. It was also named No. 1 in conducting of a high school performance for the work of Mary Jo West. Second and third places in those categories went to high schools in California, New Jersey and upstate New York.
