The Cappie Award nominations were released on Tuesday and the St. Peter High School production of "Phantom of the Opera" was conspicuously absent from the list of nominees.

Colonel By Secondary School led the way with six nominations including Best Male and Female Critcs. Rebecca Zhu and Michael Hassar were also nominater for Best Critic Team.

The school's production of "The Creature Creeps!" was also nominated for trio of Cappie Awards. Rachel Nicholson was nominated for Best Comic Actress in a Play, Colton Praill was nominated for Best Comic Actor and Will Simonds was nominated for Lead Actor in a Play.

Gloucester High School's production of "Little Shop of Horrors" received five nominations including Jenna McCaull for Lead Actress in a Musical and Duncan MacQuarrie for Best Supporting Actor in a Musical. The play was also nominated in the areas of Creativity, Best Orchestra and Props & Effects.

The Lester B. Pearson's Elie Dib received two nominations for Best Choreography and Lead Acrtor in a Play for his performance in the school's production of "The Three Musketeers". Samantha Pentillier was nominated for Best Comic Actress in a Play and the cast was nominated for Best Ensemble.
