Best Local Musical

The Eau Claire Children’s Theatre dominated the rankings for Best Local Musical, as ECCT was virtually the only local troupe that offered live performances during the pandemic. In first place, we have the supercalifragilisticexpialidocious favorite, “Mary Poppins.” Next up, “Newsies” seized the day with second place. Finally, “Frozen Jr.” found itself in third for the first time in forever, and you can bet they won’t let it go anytime soon. –Julie Quinn
