Back to High School

"High School" has been a resounding theme at NC Theatre this week with two BIG projects that directly engaged hundreds of students from across the Triangle. Cast members from our upcoming production of Disney's High School Musical 2 performed at Raleigh Fashion Week, Marbles Kids Museum and Artsplosure last weekend.  Their high-energy, crowd pleasing performance was directed and choreographed by our very own Ray Walker and Tito Hernandez - the beach ball throw at the end was a bit hit. Thanks to presenting sponsor Capital Bank for their support of this production.  

The Wildcats will perform again at North Hills this Saturday at 10:30am to spice up their weekly Farmer's Market!  Our 3rd annual Capital Awards, also sponsored by Capital Bank was a big success on Monday evening. We celebrated the outstanding achievements of over 300 students from six counties in NC with 16 awards handed out by celebrity presenters from Steve Daniels to Roy Dicks to Clay Aiken. Audiences were treated to fabulous performances and the spotlight shone brightly on high school musical theatre excellence. Thanks again to performing arts instructors, students, judges, presenters, sponsors, volunteers and audience members for supporting this important educational outreach program! Exciting new component is the National High School Musical Awards - Outstanding Actor and Actress will be heading to NY to train and perform with their peers from across the country!
