ABOUT

The Critics and Awards Program strives to recognize Greater Cincinnati’s talented community of young writers, performers, and technical crews. High school theatre and journalism students who participate in the Cappies program are trained as critics, attend shows at other schools, and write and publish reviews. 

 

At the end of the school year, the student critics vote to give awards to their fellow students for outstanding productions, group and individual performances, and achievements in technical categories. Awards are presented at the annual Cappies Gala at the Aronoff Center.

BOARD OF DIRECTORS

The Board of Directors for the Cappies of Greater Cincinnati consists of business professionals, educators, and theatre enthusiasts who are dedicated to serving the students in our program.
