Information / About Us
Northside High School's theatre department was founded in 2002, the school's inaugural year, under the direction of Ms. Lisa Brinker (retired). At that time, Ms. Brinker, Mr. Harper and Mrs. Hull produced 2 shows a year: The Fall GHSA One Act, and a follies production commonly known as Dinner Theatre or "DT" for short.
Since then the program has grown to producing four (4) shows a year for people with varying interests and skill level. We annually produce a Georgia High School Association One Act Competition piece, a holiday show, a children's theatre show, and a spring musical. Northside Theatre provides every student an opportunity to release their creative energy in a positive and encouraging environment.
Outside of a thriving and competitive extracurricular program, NHS Theatre has an active booster club, a superior curricular program, and boasts an active volunteer performance schedule that ranges from touring our children shows to elementary schools to performing for nursing homes and community dinners.
