12 Graduation Caps For The Musical Theatre Nerd In Your Life

By Jared Fembleaux - Jun 06 2016

Musical theatre is constantly teaching us very important skills to use in our day to day lives: how to make a grand entrance, how to add a level of pizzazz or drama into any situation thrown at you or even how to steal the show.  You have to pull out all the stops to get all eyes on you (but that's how it should be anyway, right?). Even if you're not center stage, full front, with a spotlight shining down on you, you still have plenty of opportunities to make some lasting impressions. Whether it's time to transition from high school to college, or from college into the working world, the one final thing that you can do to stand out on your graduation day is to decorate your graduation cap to the nines. So if you're a musical theatre junkie looking for some inspiration, look no further; these 12 inspired caps were surely the centers of attention!
