“Les Miserables” cast wins at the 2022 Cappies Gala
The South Florida Critics’ Awards Program, or Cappies for short, celebrated its 20th anniversary at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts, where the program was launched two decades ago. It is an organization composed of student reviewers who critique high school productions in South Florida.
Nominees from 19 participating schools in Broward and Palm Beach competed for the awards in 38 categories that honor outstanding achievement in high school theater, recognizing performers, designers, technicians, publicists, and critics.
Awards for American Heritage Schools, Broward Campus:
  • Diane Li, Class of '23: Best Supporting Actor in a Female Role
  • Ethan Shavelson, Class of ‘22: Best Supporting Actor in a Male Role
  • Miles Levitan, Class of ‘22: Best Lead Actor in a Male Role
  • Best Orchestra
  • Best Song award: “One Day More”
Modeled after Broadway's Tony Awards, the gala featured songs and scenes from the top-nominated shows. Cappie Award winners are determined by votes from students through a weighted peer-review voting process. Nominations are made by student critics from participating schools who attend productions at rival schools and write reviews, which then are edited by theater educators and published on FloridaTheaterOnStage.com.
