After a walk down the red carpet it was on to honors inside for high school performers from the West Chester area Sunday at the 2013 Cappies Awards.
The annual awards honor student actors, technicians, musicians, designed and theater critics in the greater Philadelphia region.
37 public and private schools in the city and surrounding counties are nominated and awarded by student theater critics. The critics themselves are also among the award nominees and winners presented with trophies. Before the show at the Upper Darby Performing Arts Center at Upper Darby High School, nominees walked the red carpet in formal wear and in some cases in costume from shows and musicals presented during the current school year.
