What are the Cappies?

The Cappies, "Critics and Awards Program," is a program through which high school theatre and journalism students are trained as critics, attend shows at other schools, write reviews, and publish those reviews both locally and through the Cappies program.   At the end of the year, the student critics vote for awards that are presented at a formal Cappies Gala held at the Hippodrome in Baltimore.

Each nominated school performs a short  excerpt from its show on stage at the Hippodrome in May at the Cappies Gala.

The Cappies Gala is regarded as the Tony's of the Baltimore Region High School’s Theatre Programs.
