Boca Raton Community High School cleaned up at the Critics’ Awards Program (Cappies for short) at 10th Annual Cappies Awards Gala held May 15 in the Au-Rene Theater at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts.
The school won nine awards (more than any other of the 13 schools competing), including Best Musical for its production of Crazy for You, which won more awards than any other musical.
Award winners were determined by votes from the students themselves through a weighted peer review voting process.
The awards ceremony was presented with support from the Broward Center for the Performing Arts, which has hosted the awards since the South Florida chapter was founded in 2002 as a part of the national non-profit organization honoring high school theater programs.
Winners from the various schools included:
