    We mount two productions a year in all kinds of styles:
    --an occasional musical
    Recent productions include:
    --The Phantom Tollbooth
    --Night of the Living Spartans
    --A Complete Idiot's Guide to School
    --All I Really Needed to Know I Learned by Being in a Bad Play
    --Spoon River Anthology
    Some pictures of the plays can be found on the links here to the left.
    Specific plays are announced the year that they are produced; productions usually occur in the 1st and 4th nine weeks.
    A majority of our work on plays will take place at North High School. Students are expected to walk to the high school after the day is over at Northside.
