2014/15 Season Announced

Next season will see seven full length productions take the stages of North Medford HS, including three senior project directorial efforts and a musical collaboration with Wilson Elementary School. At least four single night events are also planned, including sketch & improv comedy nights and a reading of an original student work.

Black Tornado Theater director John Doty will be at the helm for three productions: Antigone in mid October in the Sjolund, then Rashomon in Mid-March in the Little Theater before returning to the Sjolund to end the season with The Sound of Music on the main stage in May.

Seniors Larenzi Stover, Griffin Allensis and Heather Patterson will direct in the Little Theater during 1st Semester, with Stover opening the season with Much Ado About Nothing in early September, Allensis leading Dirk (based on Douglas Adams' novel Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency) in late November and Patterson overseeing Noël Coward's Fallen Angels in late January.

Wilson will be on the Sjolund stage mid February with an adaptation of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

Specific show dates will be announced prior to the end of this school year.

Fundraising BLITZ (also known as 'begging')

We have concluded our full production season for 2013/14. Noises Off was well received by the very few people who came to see it. We are still in a situation of needing to raise a lot of funds to get us to the end of this year in the black. The GoFundMe campaign (see the big link on the right of the screen? click that) has stalled out at $1010, which is enough to retire the debt of the Musical Theater account.

If you aren't comfortable with online donations, you can contact Sheila Johnson at the high school directly (842-5215) and make a donation via credit card or come in, in person.

We really need to get to $3000 before the end of this month and we hope to get the $5000 target before next school year starts.
