Raytown High School Theatre Students Receive Theatre Awards

Raytown High School Theatre students received two Cappies awards for their work on the Raytown High School production of The Addams Family at the Cappies Virtual Awards Gala on May 30.

Kylie Butler and Mesmariah Hall received the award for Hair and Makeup Design and Cheyli Ferbet received the award for Set Design.

The Raytown High School Theatre Department received sixteen Cappies nominations for their musical The Addams Family. This is the most nominations Raytown High School has received for a single production.  

The Cappies organization is a national program that trains high school theatre and journalism students to see, critique, and write reviews about high school theatre. The goal is to give high school theatre programs feedback and celebrate the arts community. 

The director of the Raytown High School theatre program is Katie Kolster.
