South Florida Cappies
One of the gem's of JPT's programs is our Cappies department. Cappies (Cappies coming from C.A.P., "Critics and Awards Program") is a program through which high school theatre and journalism students are trained as critics, attend shows at other local schools, and publish those reviews in local newspapers. At the end of the year, a formal Cappies Gala takes place, where actors and techies from Cappied shows are nominated for and win awards.
This year's Cappie Critic Team includes Nicole Sugarman (the Lead Critic), Jaime Happel, Kimberly Sessions, Emma Sugarman, Leah Tomas, Nicholas Vela, and Dani Wolfe.
At the 2018 Cappies Gala, Taravella came home with the Best Sophomore Critic Award for Nicole Sugarman!
Want to join the Cappies team? At the end of the year Cappies Applications will be given out to aspiring critics at a Drama Meeting. We'd love to see you join!
