• Thank you for visiting the homepage for the NPHS Theatre Department.

    It is my belief that through the Theatre Arts, students are given the incredible opportunity to develop their imagination and creativity individually, while working as a community in a collaborative environment.

    Our Theatre Department offers Theatre I CP, Theatre II, Technical Theatre CP, Theatre Practicum (Production class), Honors Stage Production ROP, IB Theatre, Stagecraft ROP (Articulated with Ventura County Community College District).

    In addition to creating theatrical productions, students also have the opportunity to attend theatre festivals and competitions, to showcase their work, apply for scholarships and allow them the opportunity to collaborate with other theatre students from around the country.
    We are also proud members of the International Thespian Society.

    We are excited about the future of the Theatre Department at NPHS and look forward to sharing our hard work with you.”
