The Cappies first organizational meeting of the year was held on Sunday October 16th at Plymouth-Whitemarsh high school. Over 175 student critics, mentors, and directors were in attendance.
The Cappies program has thirty-nine high schools involved this year from New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Delaware. The first Cappies’ shows start the weekend of October 28th and the last show will be in April. Each show will be attended by Cappies critics from various teams, an average of thirty critics per show. The critics each write a review of the show and the top two reviews as chosen by the Cappies mentors will be published on this blog.
Cappies 2016-2017 starts this weekend and the year ends with the Cappies Gala on April 23rd where the Cappies trophies will be given out for over twenty categories rewarding excellence both on stage and behind the scenes.
The Cappies steering committee is looking forward to another year of celebrating high school theatre in the Greater Philadelphia Area!
