    CH2 November 16th & 17th

    A private school for young girls is scandalized when a spiteful student turns against her teachers, spreading lies and rumors with tragic consequences. The Children's Hour by Lillian Hellman was a controversial piece when it premiered in the 1930's and all these years later, it remains a haunting reminder of the horrors of intolerance.

    March 8th & 9thchicago  

     Ever 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.

    Mission Statement

    New Providence schools are known not only for the outstanding education students receive, but also for extra-curricular activities that guide students in developing skills outside the classroom.  Using this model, the NPHS Drama Dept. seeks to meet the following goals:

    • Provide students with opportunities for performance and technical theatre that challenge and extend their creativity.

    • Make connections between theatre, other classroom content areas, and life experiences.

    • Encourage a lifelong appreciation for theatre arts.

    Quote of the week:

    "An ounce of behavior is worth a pound of words." - Sanford Meisner
