Our History
Theatre productions at Northampton can be traced back 100 years. 
We have quite the history of staging some memorable and historic plays and musicals. 
In the late 1910's / early 1920's Northampton was the center of the world's cement industry.
 Many Eastern European immigrants came to the area to work in the cement plants to provide their children with the education they were unable to achieve.

This education included the stage.  For many years, the productions were part of a Music class, English class or a Senior Class event.  In 1971, the Drama Club, "The Company", was formed and the rest, as they say, is history.   Let's take a look back at the rich Theatre history of NAHS.
