On June 10, high school actors, critics, and community members alike came together for a celebration of high school theatre in the form of the annual Cappies Gala. Held at the Kennedy Center, this gala is the culminating event of the year for the Cappies, a program that allows high school students to watch and review high school productions in the DC area, and at the end of the year, nominate the best shows for awards. These awards, “Cappies,” are given for everything from lead actor to special effects and technology, recognizing superior talent in every role students fill to create a production.
