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 are: Brianna S (lead critic) Brielle W, Victoria K, Anji C., Rayna S., and Aurelle O. They have seen a combined total of 9 shows so far this season and 6 ANC reviews have been chosen for publication: Anji's reviews for Grease (Westchester), Into the Woods (Jenkintown HS), and Footloose (Lower Moreland),and Victoria's reviews for Joseph and the Technicolor Dreamcoat (Cardinal O'Hara), Addams Family (Agnes Irwin), Grease (Westchester), Spamalot (Bordentown) and Les Miserables (Eastern Regional HS). Read the published reviews here.


In December, 24 Cappies critics attended and reviewed A Charlie Brown Christmas. Read their reviews here. In the spring A Charlie Brown Christmas will be eligible for awards given at the annual Greater Philadelphia Cappies Gala.
