The Greater Philadelphia Cappies have announced nominees for the third annual awards gala, scheduled for today at the Upper Darby Performing Arts Center.

Nominees were named in 38 categories, ranging from critics to performances and behind-the-scenes roles. Listed are the categories that included nominees from the three participating New Jersey schools: Holy Cross High School in Delran, Eastern Regional High School in Voorhees and Lindenwold High School.

The gala will begin at 5:30 p.m. at the center, 601 N. Lansdowne Ave., Drexel Hill. Tickets are $12. For tickets, call the Performing Arts Center box office at 610-622-1189.
