Voting is over, the season is complete. And, the Cappies nominations have been released.
Leading the way in nominations this year are the teams from Unionville High School and Upper Merion Area High School. Unionville’s intriguing production of Antigone by Sophocles and Upper Merion’s hilarious musical The Addams Family, along with their critic teams, garnered an impressive thirteen nominations each. Ridley High School’s production of Les Miserables: School Edition marched its way to twelve nominations. Many schools received eleven nominations, including: Conestoga High School (The Mystery of Edwin Drood), Episcopal Academy (Peter and the Starcatcher), PALCS School for the Creative and Performing Arts (Sweeney Todd), and Plymouth Whitemarsh High School (Les Miserables: School Edition).
