Our after school program teaches students to harness essential 21st century theatre-related skills from acting and directing to design and marketing. All the plays we present are produced in our after school program. The plays we perform are all student-run.
Whereas some of our after school alumni are working in local theaters, others are studying theatre or applying those drama-related skills to their future careers. Theatre skills benefit everyone, from the student athlete to the MBA business executive.
Any NSHS student may participate in our after-school program—you don’t have to be in the theatre class to be involved.
Calling all actors
Students must audition to be cast in our plays. We ask students to commit to the play just like student athletes commit to the entire sports season.
If your grades dip, we offer tutorials. Many of our actors are enrolled in challenging A.P. courses and are willing to help out fellow cast members. We don’t want parents pulling their students from the play the week we open! Most productions have no understudies, so while the show WILL go on, it might not look as good as planned if we have to get Rillingale to go onstage with a script.
Calling all technicians & designers
We are looking for some strong freshmen and sophomores this year. We train all Front of House, Design, and Technical staff on the premises, no need to audition. Like actors, we ask you to commit to the production[s] and keep up those grades.
