Three adjudicators from the CAPA Marquee Awards program attend a performance of each participating school’s qualifying musical theatre production to evaluate nominated students/productions and provide valuable written feedback to the production’s cast, crew, and creative team.
Each year, the culminating event of the CAPA Marquee Awards program is an Awards Showcase which gives students from ALL participating high schools the chance to perform at a professional venue and work with a team of theatre and music professionals.
Students selected as Best Actor in a Leading Role and Best Actress in a Leading Role will be designated as official Jimmy® Award nominees and will receive a CAPA-sponsored trip to attend “Jimmys Week” in New York City - a training intensive with theatre professionals and industry experts - and will compete on the national level for the 2022 Jimmy Awards® for Best Performance by an Actor and Best Performance by an Actress.
