The North Hunterdon Theater Organization offers students a variety of theatrical experiences. Throughout the school year, our program is designed to provide opportunities for participation in several areas of the performing arts, including drama, comedy, musical theater, dance, stage crew, and technical theater. All students are invited to participate in NHTO productions as actors, musicians, stage hands, hospitality managers, or theater technicians.
In addition to the information in this brochure, students and parents can find details about our productions on the NHTO website at: http://www.nhvweb.net/nhhs/english/mmeo/theater/
