The drama program walked away with more than a dozen awards.
Calling the Liberty High School drama program “award-winning” is somewhat of an understatement. Students in the program walked away from the Critics and Awards Program (Cappies) with 14 awards for the Baltimore Area High School Region of the Academy Awards for theater. Congratulations to the winners: The Cappies program trains students as critics; they write reviews - which are published in local and national media outlets – and ultimately vote on the Cappies winners.
