NEW CANAAN, Conn. -- The underclassmen of the New Canaan High School Theatre department recently presented the production of "Annie Jr." to nearly sold out audiences for all three performances.
Each year, the NCHS Theatre puts on five shows, a fundraising gala and more. The students get involved with every aspect of the theatre--from down stage to back stage. Besides acting, they work on sets, props, costumes and makeup, and have even tried their hand at creating original music for a production. Student musicians join in on most shows as well.
As the students mature, they learn to teach each other as they assist in stage managing, directing and choreography. And each year in conjunction with upcoming shows, workshops and lectures are offered with topics ranging from the art of clowning to tap dancing.
