Making theatre magic takes long hours and hard work and determination, and there are rewards for the hard work and effort that goes into each and every aspect of a theatrical production. The students at Woodbridge High School held performances that earned them a prestigious Cappie Award Nomination in two categories.
Woodbridge High School’s production of “Our Town” has earned Cappie Award nominations for the following students: Ella Baumann, Mark Gonzales, and Sadie Sullivan (original soundscape) for Creativity, and Miriam Elhadidi for Best Supporting Actress in a Play.
The Cappies (Critics and Awards Program) is a program in which high school theatre and journalism students are trained as critics, attend shows at other schools, write reviews, and publish those reviews in local newspapers, including The Washington Post.
At the end of the school year, the student critics vote for awards, which are presented at a formal Cappies Gala. This year’s gala will be held on June 10 at 7:00 p. m. at The Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C.
