Farewell Ms. Fraker!

Ms. Fraker is saying goodbye to NWSA.  She is the Chair of the Theatre Department and has taught theatre classes for ten years.  Prior to that, she worked in theatre and film production in New York for more than twenty-five years.  She was the Associate Producer of three Broadway shows, including the Tony-winning The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas, which ran for seven years.  At NWSA, she has co-directed (with Corey Mitchell) the last six spring musicals, including The Pirates of Penzance, Peter Pan, Shrek the Musical, Footloose, and West Side Story.  She has also directed The Scarlet Letter, Antigone, Lysistrata, The Crucible, The Rimers of Eldritch, The Revenger’s Tragedy, Romeo and Juliet, The Caucasian Chalk Circle, and The Arabian Nights, all of which won multiple awards at the NCTC High School Play Festival.  She is a proud twenty-five year member of the Directors Guild of America, and she is honored to be named this year’s Outstanding Theatre Arts Educator by the North Carolina Theatre Conference.  

Help us celebrate Ms. Fraker and show our thanks for all she has done the past ten years.  To show our appreciation, TAG is collecting donations to send her off in style as she begins an exciting new chapter of her life.
