A Middle School Play
The Case of Alex Hansen
by Alan Haehnel
Friday, March 3 at 7:00 pm
Saturday, March 4 at 7:00 pm
In the Charles LaBorde Theatre

Students:  $5 at door
Adults:  $7 at door

Alex Hansen awakes to find himself on trial for his life. His legal representation is terrible; he's already been deemed guilty; the courtroom proceedings are chaotic to the point of dark comedy. All seems lost, except when Alex gets the momentary sense that someone, somewhere, is advocating for him. In the play's surprising climax, Alex experiences a profound and moving redemption. This play is presented by the 2016-2017 Performance Company Class. It is the Official Middle School NCTC Play Festival 2017 entry.

Tickets Available at the Door Only

All Shook Up
A Musical Inspired By and Featuring the Music of Elvis Presley®
Book by Joe Dipietro

Saturday, March 11 at 2:00 pm
Saturday, March 11 at 7:00 pm
At CPCC's Halton Theatre, 1206 Elizabeth Avenue

If you love Elvis, this is the show for you!  All Shook Up is a musical  written around songs made famous by Elvis Presley.  The story takes us to 1955 in a square little town in a square little state when a guitar-playing roustabout rides a motorcycle into town. He changes everything and everyone he meets in this hip-swiveling, lip-curling musical fantasy that’ll have you jumpin’ out of your blue suede shoes with such classics as “Heartbreak Hotel,” “Jailhouse Rock,” and “Don’t Be Cruel.”

Tickets Available Through the CPCC Box Office


In Memory of John Fraker

A word from Bonnie:

“I have never been happier that I teach at Northwest School of the Arts. So many wonderful people from the NWSA family came to support me and my family yesterday at the memorial for my husband – administrators, staff, teachers, former teachers, students, former students, parents, even parents of students who graduated years ago. I was proud beyond words of my amazing students who sang – Karley Kornegay, Jocelyn Cabaniss, Liam Pearce, Ryan Kapur, Jeremy Mitchell Cousar, and Keston Steele, and Jordan Hardesty, who played piano. John was always so proud of the NWSA students, and he would have loved their beautiful renditions of some of his favorite songs. My family and out of town friends were blown away by their voices. Finally, I am so blessed to have the friends/colleagues I do — Kristin Stonnell, who played so beautifully.; Matt Hinson who made me cry like a baby with his rendition of “You Raise Me Up”, and who organized and rehearsed the students and the rest of the music, and who has generally been my rock through this ordeal; Corey D Mitchell, who officiated like a pro, and who made my laugh at loud. His beautiful tribute to John was heartfelt and perfect, and he has been here for me at every turn; Finally, the beautiful Lucinda Barca Supernavage, who has been there herself, and who gave me a digital and understanding shoulder to cry on. These people, and so many others were generous and compassionate when I needed it. I love my NWSA famliy.”
