LCPS Theatre Productions Earn 41 Cappies Nominations


High School theatre productions staged by Loudoun County Public Schools (LCPS) high schools have earned 41 Cappies nominations.

The "Tony Awards" for high school students, the Cappies awards ceremony will be held at 7 p.m. Monday, June 6, at The Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts Concert Hall in Washington. The highlight of this evening is performances by those nominated for awards.  

The Cappies is a writing and awards program that trains high school theatre and journalism students to be expert writers, critical thinkers and leaders. Theatre and journalism students are trained as critics and attend productions at high schools in the Metropolitan Washington area. At the end of the school year, Cappies student critics decide which performers and technicians should receive awards for their productions.
