Van Wert High School Theatre Department is excited to announce our 2019-2020 season. Our fall play production, Sherlock Holmes, will be performed at the Niswonger Performing Arts Center on Friday, November 22 and Saturday, November 23 at 7:00pm. Rehearsals have begun, and students are looking forward to sharing the classic tales of detective Sherlock Holmes and partner Dr. Watson.
This play, originally written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and adapted by Tim Kelly, is set in the 1890s and is full of suspense and mystery. Join us in November to see if Holmes can solve the case. General admission tickets ($6) will be available from cast and crew members, the NPAC Box Office, and at the door. Sherlock Holmes is produced with special arrangement by Pioneer Drama Service, Inc. in Englewood, Colorado.
On April 2, 3, and 4, 2020, join Van Wert High School Theatre as we present Tarzan®, the Stage Musical at 7:00pm on the Niswonger Performing Arts Center stage. Auditions will take place in December and students will begin rehearsals in January. The audience will enjoy music written by Phil Collins and a story based on the Disney film and book by David Henry Hwang.
Tarzan® was originally produced on Broadway by Disney Theatrical Productions and is owned by Edgar Rice Burroughs, Inc. Tickets for the musical will go on sale in early March as you won’t want to miss our talented students! Reserved and general admission seating will be available. Tarzan®, the Stage Musical is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI). All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI. www.MTIShows.com.
VWHS Theatre hopes to see you at our fall and spring productions as we hope to continue to create, perform, and inspire the Van Wert community through the theatrical arts.
