The NPHS Drama Dept. is proud to announce our upcoming productions for 2018-19
November 16th & 17th
THE LARAMIE PROJECT presents a deeply complex portrait of a community’s response to the 1998 murder of Matthew Shepard, a young gay man living in Laramie, Wyoming. In a series of poignant reflections, the residents of Laramie react to the hate crime and surrounding media storm with anger, bewilderment and sorrow. The play portrays the seismic and deeply personal impact Matthew’s death had on this small town while also demonstrating the power of the human spirit to triumph over bigotry and violence. As we near the twentieth anniversary, Matthew Shepard’s story still reverberates, urging us on with its clarion call to confront the destructive power of bullying and hate, in all forms.
March 8th & 9thEver inspiring and feeling even more timely now then when it was written, the female driven double murderess song and dancer is a romp through the corrupt prison and court systems of the 1920s.Chicago, winner of 6 Tony awards and one of the longest-running Broadway musicals of all time, feels as upbeat, smart and on point today as when it was written in 1975. Intelligent, witty and connivingly devilish with classic songs about press manipulation, betrayal and selfishness, Chicago could feel equally at home on either the Broadway stage or the White House lawn.
Audition dates, times, and info to be posted soon! Have a great summer!
