The Cappie-lication
The Fountain Valley High School Theatre Department is looking for new critics for its Cappies Critics Team!

What is Cappies?
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. FVHS is involved with the OC Cappies in which selected reviews are published in the Orange County Register.

In addition to attending the critic training workshop in the fall, for the 2016-2017 school year, critics will be expected to attend at least 6 shows throughout the school year.

What is gained from being a Cappies critic:
By joining Cappies, you can improve your writing skills, gain the opportunity to be published in print, and become involved in theatre/journalism even if such classes do not fit into your schedule.

All applications are due by Monday September 5th at 11:59 PM. Applicants will be notified by Tuesday September 6th at 3:00PM via email.
