What’s Next for Northwood’s Drama Program?


This year Northwood’s drama program offered two great performances.The musical “The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee” in November and Anon(ymous), which was a play.

There won’t be another show for the rest of the school year, but there will be auditions in May for the next musical, planned for next November at the Lake Placid Center for the Arts. The drama program is running the audition in May so students can learn their lines and songs over summer.

“A musical performance is a lot of work,” said drama program director Ms. Noel Carmichael. The program also held auditions last spring and it was a success this past fall. Carmichael is currently considering plays and musicals for next year’s productions. She chooses the theme of the show based on what’s going on in the world or important topics for the community. Next year, the program wants to offer additional theatre classes so there will be more opportunities for students to get involved in the program. Carmichael hopes to offer a class about costumes and set design, for example.

Ms. Carmichael is still looking for ideas for the coming show in November 2019, so if you have any ideas or want to participate in future performances, please send her an email: carmichaeln@northwoodschool.com.
