ABOUT US

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
