Cappies featureThe Montverde Academy Theatre Department participated in the Cappies program for the first time this school year.  The Cappies, “Critics and Awards Program,” is a program through 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.  Throughout the year, each critic reviews five shows, and each teacher-mentor volunteers twice.

According to their official website, The Cappies is a national organization for high school theatre in the Orlando area “…intent on bringing the best of high school theatre to the stage and to our local media. CFC invites public and private high schools from Orange, Seminole, Lake and Osceola counties to participate in this extraordinary organization.”

Students from different high schools who are involved with The Cappies go out to review shows during the school year.  Montverde Academy also participates in The Cappies by reviewing high school performances.
