The NHS Drama Department stresses the educational value of theater arts and is committed to offering students interesting, challenging and enjoyable dramatic activities in which to participate. Experience is gained through after-school projects and through classes such as Introduction to Acting, Theater Performance, and Stagecraft. Students are taught skills and principals in technical theater as well as performance, and are offered opportunities to demonstrate those skills in productions.
Audition dates and requirements for all productions are announced during the daily announcements, on the performing arts website, and on flyers posted around the school. All North students are welcome to audition!
Director: Mrs. Leslie Lacorte
