A large number of nominations for this year's Cappies awards went to Westfield High School students.
The Cappies critics and awards program is a program that trains high school students at theatre critics, then publishes their reviews in the news media. The student critics then vote for awards. The winners are announced at a gala in June.
The nominees at Westfield include the critic team, Julian Sanchez for rising critic and supporting actor in a musical and Joseph Biagini for graduating critic.
