At the end of the school year, the student critics vote on the awards to present during the Cappies Gala on May 25 at Oak Grove High School.

Jennifer Jarman Sandau is the PHHS theater director, Dr. Keith Curington is the music director, Suzannah Smith is the orchestra director, Liz Henderson is the accompanist and Mindy Moritz is the choreographer.
