Van Wert High School Theatre Department is excited to announce our 2018-2019 season. Our fall play production of the classic novel by Louisa May Alcott, Little Women, will be performed at the Niswonger Performing Arts Center on Friday, November 16 and Saturday, November 17 at 7:00 p.m. Rehearsals will begin in September and students are looking forward to sharing this story, which continues to capture the hearts of readers. Originally written in 1868 by Alcott, this play version adapted by Scott Davidson allows the audience to meet the March sisters as they grow up and walk through life’s experiences. Little Women will warm your heart when it takes the stage in November. Tickets ($6) will be available from cast and crew members, the NPAC Box Office, and at the door. Little Women is produced with special arrangement by Pioneer Drama Service, Inc. in Englewood, Colorado.
On April 11, 12, and 13, 2019, join Van Wert High School Theatre as we present Seussical, the Musical at 7:00 p.m. on the Niswonger Performing Arts Center stage. Auditions will take place in December and students will begin rehearsals in January for this toe-tapping musical based on the many stories of Dr. Seuss. The audience will meet famous Dr. Seuss characters such as the Cat in the Hat, Horton the Elephant, Gertrude McFuzz, and Cindy Lou Who as they visit the Jungle of Nool and Whoville. Bring the whole family to join in on their adventures. Tickets for the musical will go on sale in early March as this is a show you will not want to miss. Reserved and general admission seating will be available. Seussical, the Musical is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI).
