Two members of the cast of Treasure Island—graduating senior Shelby Davis and junior Seth Friedman—recently won Cappies for Featured Actress and Creativity in Directing categories, respectively. Upper theater teacher Stephanie Park said she is overjoyed with the work of the Upper Cast, and thrilled about Seven Hills’ Cappies wins, which recognize the best high school theater. “Congratulations to Shelby Davis and Seth Friedman,” said Park. “They both worked extremely hard and wowed me with their results. I am so happy their work was recognized by the Cappies.” The Cappies is a nationally affiliated, student-directed competition similar to the Tony Awards. Seven Hills became a member of the Cappies of Greater Cincinnati chapter in 2015. According to one Cappies critic, “Entering with the most memorable moment of the show, Blind Pew, played by Shelby Davis, did a great job committing to her eerie character. Her creepy contacts added to her overall performance, making her minor role stick out in the cast of many characters … ” Of Seth Friedman, Cappies critics shared, “The student director, Seth Friedman, did an excellent job staging the first scene and successfully orchestrated engaging fight scenes.” Congratulations to the Upper Cast, technical theater director Trey Tatum, and Upper theater teacher Stephanie ParkCheck out more reviews excerpts here.
