APPLY TO BE A CAPPIE CRITIC - 2021-2022

With a passion and focus on student writing, the Cappies of Greater Cincinnati is a writing and awards program that trains high school theatre and journalism students to be excellent writers, critical thinkers and leaders. Students view local high school productions to critique and be published in various local media outlets. Through the process, students are trained as critics, discuss, and learn about theater productions. At the end of the year, the Cappie Critics decided whom amongst the performers and technicians should be recognized with a glamourous and exciting awards ceremony.

Roger Bacon is set out to find NINE of its best writers who have a love for live theater in the Cincinnati area.
