By • Jun 13th, 2012 • Category: Cappies, News

The Thirteenth Annual Cappies Gala took place on June 10 in the Concert Hall at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. The gala was attended by more than 2400 students, teachers, families, and friends. Performers critics, and tech crews from 58 high schools in Northern Virginia, Maryland, and Washington, D.C., received 40 prestigious Cappie awards.

Casts of nominated shows and the performers of nominated songs presented musical numbers as well as scenes from the nominated plays. The entire show will be aired on Cox Cable “Red Apple” Channel 21 beginning the week of July 2 and will continue throughout the summer.

Throughout the year, the Cappies program is driven by hundreds of area high school theater student critics who attend each others’ shows, write reviews, and serve as Cappies awards judges.

The Gala ceremony was marked with excitement and encouragement. There was never a sense of competitiveness or negative reactions as any of the Awards were announced.

Westfield High School received ten awards, including Musical for their production of Crazy For You. McLean High School received five awards, including Play, for A View From the Bridge.
