From Shakespeare’s plays to blockbuster Broadway musicals, putting together a high school’s theatre production takes many hours from dedicated students, teachers, and parents to get to opening night. There are rewards for the hard work and effort that go into each and every aspect of a theatrical production. Osbourn Park High School’s production of “The Addams Family” earned a prestigious Cappie Award nomination in five categories; Ava Foster and Nathan Rankin won the Cappie Award for Best “Hair and Make-Up!”

“The Addams Family,” a musical about a ghoulish American family who loves all things macabre, earned the following Cappie Award nominations: Nathan Rankin and Ava Foster for “Hair and Make-Up,” Daryn Smolen and the cast for “Costumes,” the Theatre Tech Classes for “Sets,” Maddy Sifford and Natalie Todd for “Stage Management,” and Luke Padilla for “Best Comic Actor in a Musical.”

Derrian Brown, who portrayed “Gomez Addams” was selected to perform onstage during the 20th Annual Cappies Gala, which was held at 7 p.m. on Monday, May 27, 2019, at the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.
Dr. Babur Lateef, Chairman-at-Large for the Prince William County School Board, presented the award for “Best Set.”

The Cappies, "Critics and Awards Program," is a student program through which high school theatre and journalism students are trained as critics, attend shows at other schools, write reviews, and publish those reviews in local newspapers like The Washington Post.
