Tickets Now On Sale For The 2022 CAPA MARQUEE AWARDS at The Ohio Theatre

The Columbus Association for the Performing Arts (CAPA) today announced that tickets are now on sale for the 2022 CAPA Marquee Awards presented by American Electric Power Foundation. This in-person event at the Ohio Theatre on Tuesday, May 10, is the culmination of CAPA's year-long, educational program designed to celebrate, support, and advocate for high school musical theatre education throughout central Ohio.

CAPA presents the 2022 CAPA Marquee Awards at the Ohio Theatre (39 E. State St.) on Tuesday, May 10, at 7:30 pm.

For 2021-22, each of the 18 participating high schools have submitted a musical theatre production for review by the program's team of professional adjudicators. On April 14, CAPA will announce the (up to) five nominees selected from the 18 productions in the categories of Best Actor in a Leading Role, Best Actress in a Leading Role, Best Actor in a Supporting Role, Best Actress in a Supporting Role, Best Musical Production, Best Direction, Outstanding Ensemble Performance, Outstanding Student Orchestra, and Outstanding Technical Execution. Adjudicators will also separately evaluate hard-copy nominations submitted in the categories of Backstage Excellence and Outstanding Student Designer.

On Tuesday, May 10, at 7:30 pm, the 2022 CAPA Marquee Awards will culminate with a red-carpet ceremony and student showcase at the Ohio Theatre at which winners in all categories will be announced. Modeled after the Tony Awards, the CAPA Marquee Awards will showcase live performances from the nominees for Best Musical Production, Best Actor in a Leading Role, and Best Actress in a Leading Role, as well as opening and closing numbers that incorporate nominated students from all participating high schools.

Students selected as Best Actor in a Leading Role and Best Actress in a Leading Role will move on to compete at the national level as official nominees in the categories of Best Performance by an Actor and Best Performance by an Actress at The 2022 Jimmy Awards/National High School Musical Theatre Awards (NHSMTA).
