The NBHS theatre season will open Thursday, November 20th with a production entitled GALLERY OF ONE-ACTS. Performances run November 20, 21 and 22 at 7:00PM each evening in the NBHS Auditorium.
GALLERY OF ONE-ACTS is an evening of avant-garde short works, including Edward Albee's "The Sandbox," Steven Thornburg's "Pablo Neruda Then and Now," excerpts from Edward Crosby Wells' "Wait A Minute!" and an original dance short, "Waiting." These authors were highly influenced by Absurdism and Modern Art. In "The Sandbox," Mommy and Daddy bring Grandma to the beach and stage an elaborate event. In "Pablo Neruda Then and Now," we come into contact with the poetry and the life of a great poet and diplomat. "Wait a Minute" is a selection of short, absurdist, skits. Finally, the dance piece, "Waiting," explores various characters and how they wait.
"Wait a Minute!" performers: Caleb Blanco, Shelsy Juarez, Jordy Herrera, Hillary Hwaga, Erik Lopez, Abednego Ford, Ronaldo Andino, Keylie Barrientos, Dalia Flores, Jose' Rosales.

HEARTS OF SCARLETT
The newest club at NBH is Hearts of Scarlett.
The club's mission is to crochet hats for premature babies at Saint Peter's Children's Hospital.
Hearts of Scarlett will be meeting on Wednesday's from 2:30-3:45 PM in room A211. The group is being advised my Ms. Porcelli.
You do not need crocheting experience so you can come and learn and be a part of a crochet circle. If you have experience you can learn new stitches and patterns and provide a valuable service to the community and the families of premature babies.
