The cast of Much Ado About Nothing posted on June 12 in the Little Theater lobby.
Not every member of the original cast will be able to take part in the show, so THIS version is likely not the version of the cast who will be on stage on September 11, but for now, we offer our congratulations and look forward to the Table Read on noon, July 22. The show runs Sept 11 thru 13 in the Little Theater. Tickets will be on sale beginning in mid August.
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.
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.

The One Acts carry a PG-13 rating for coarse language and violence in the first play, "Finding a Bit of Strength" and for violence and intense situations in the third work, "Untold." The middle piece is considerably lighter fare.
Written by seniors Kate Pelch and Kyle Bird, and directed by Bird, Pelch and senior Leslie Kirstein, the evening is a senior project for all three students.
