At the 11th Annual Greater Philly Cappies, a student review-based mini-Tony awards for high schools in Pennsylvania, Delaware, and New Jersey, my school got more than 14 nominations including one for Best Musical! We were ecstatic when we heard, and immediately began preparing our presentation  (after every few awards, a performance is done by a nominee for Best Musical, Play, or Song). Our show was The Little Mermaid, so we decided to the iconic number "Under the Sea" as our song. Unfortunately, much of our cast could not make it to the Cappies, so the people on stage for the song was cut dramatically. The amount of boys on stage was halved, and the population of girls didn't fare much better. (more...)
