Cappies – Critic and Awards Program

The Cappies is a writing and awards program that guides high school theatre and journalism students to be skilled writers, critical thinkers, and student leaders. Student critics compete to be published in local media outlets by attending productions at other schools and writing critical reviews.

Cappies students discuss and learn about theatre production. Throughout the year, the Ottawa Citizen and Ottawa Sun publish the reviews with the students' bylines. At the end of the season, a “Tony’s-like” celebration occurs, where all nominated shows perform. The final Cappies awards are presented with a trophy by regional critics and peers.
