Adjudication Process

Each school that participates in the CAPA Marquee Awards will register to have their musical evaluated between November 1, 2019-April 18, 2020 by a team of three adjudicators.

Evaluations will consist of providing educationally-focused feedback and scoring and will be completed through an online system. All adjudicators will be required to attend an orientation session at the Ohio Theatre on either Tuesday, September 10, 2019 or Thursday, September 12, 2019 from 6:30-9:30 pm which will provide guidance on how to fairly evaluate each production on its own merits. Adjudicators will be paid an honorarium of $50.00 per show. The number of shows adjudicated will be based on several factors including the number of participating high schools and the total number of adjudicators.
