Performing Arts | Cappies


The national Cappies program was created in 1999 to promote high school theatre and journalism programs; ANC has been a part of the Greater Philadelphia Cappies chapter since 2006. Students are trained in journalism, fairness and theatre critique at the beginning of each school year and attend five shows throughout the year at other area high schools. At a Cappies show, there are 30-50 student critics from different high schools in attendance as Cappies. They meet before and immediately after the show for a discussion facilitated by a teacher mentor. Each critic writes a short review which is anonymously read by the teacher mentor, who then chooses the top four reviews for publication.

On ANC’s team this year: Anji C. (lead critic), Aurelle O., Hope O., James G., Jade D. and Hanna M. As critics, Anji has been published 10 times, and Hope and Aurelle have each been published once; read all published reviews here at Philly.com. Below read all of the reviews written by our critics this year.

Last year, Shrek and the Cappies team were nominated in 6 categories. Anji Cooper (Outstanding 11th Grade Critic), Victoria Kline (Outstanding 12th Grade Critic), ANC Critic Team (Outstanding Critic Team), Nitza Nizqhiri, Emily Martin & Crew (Hair & Makeup), StageCraft Class (Sets), James Gay (Comic Actor in a Musical).
