Orange County Cappies
The Cappies Critics and Awards Program strives to recognize Orange County student writers, performers, and technical crews. High school theatre students who participate in the Cappies program are trained as critics, attend shows at other schools, and write reviews. The top three reviews from each show are published online.
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. The critics vie for the Best Critic and Best Critic Team Award. Awards are presented at the annual Cappies Gala at the The National City Grove of Anaheim.
