What's a Cappie? A program sponsored by the Capitol Steps through which high school theatre and journalism students are trained as critics, attend shows at other schools, write and publish reviews in local newspapers like the Washington Post, Cincinnati Enquirer, Dallas Morning News, Kansas City Star, and the Philadelphia Inquirer. At the end of the year student critics vote for awards that are presented at a formal Cappies Gala. In July and August many of the top award honorees from the U.S. and Canada are invited to participate in the Cappies International Theatre, where they perform shows at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. Learn more about the CAPPIES in our area....
