The aim of the Newport Harbor Theatre Company is to provide academic and artistic opportunities for students within its district as a component of their artistic, scholarly and social growth as high school students.
Through the department’s three guiding principles we aim to teach, create and be fiscally sound:
Academic alignment and implementation of the International Baccalaureate Theatre (IB Theatre) program, and State’s Visual and Performing Arts (VAPA) standards
Artistic inclusiveness by embracing ethnic, gender, and lifestyle diversity, and
Fiscal responsibility in the pursuit and the development of the NHHS stage productions
