The 15th season of the Cappies is canceled reports the Ottowa Citizen.

The Cappies is an international program for High School theatre, journalism, and playrights. The Cappies awards recognize and celebrate these students in their field.

Unfortunately, this year, Canada's Capital Cappies has canceled the remainder of what was its 15th anniversary season.

"Considering how much work and effort go into preparing, performing, and reviewing a show, it was heartbreaking to have to cancel this year's season. We know how much the program and performing theatre mean to so many students," said Cappies Program Director, Lindsay Laviolette.

"Now, more than ever, we need art in our lives," Laviolette said. "I was amazed by the student's unwavering resiliency, adaptability, and support for one another despite being disappointed by the cancellation. These students continue to define what it means to be a part of an arts community."
