The Cappies Critics and Awards Program strives to recognize Greater Cincinnati’s talented young writers, performers and technical crews. High school theater and journalism students in the program become trained as critics, then attend shows at other schools to write and publish reviews. At the end of each school year, these student critics vote on awards for their fellow students in a list of categories, including outstanding productions, group and individual performances, as well as achievements in various technical categories.
