Earlier this spring, Archmere's Winter Musical, Chicago High School Edition, was nominated for six Cappies Awards. On Sunday, June 7th, the cast and crew attended the virtual Cappies Gala, an end of season celebration that highlights all nominated high school shows, and presents the final Cappies Awards. Awards are given for performance, non-performance, and best critics. Congratulations to Alexis Rendel ’21, the recipient of the Cappies Award for Choreography.
The Cappies, "Critics and Awards Program," is a program through which high school theater and journalism students are trained as critics, attend shows at other schools, write reviews, and publish those reviews. The Cappies is an international program for recognizing, celebrating, and providing learning experiences for high school theater and journalism students and teenage playwrights. Getting published earns a critic points towards that critic award. Archmere's winter musical, Chicago High School Edition, was a Cappies show this year, and hosted over forty critics from all over the Philly area.
