About NWP


Who We Are

NWP was founded in 1978 by a group of avid theatre personalities from the area.  We are a community theatre made up of neighbors, friends and co-workers; we are teachers, students, engineers, parents, pastors, laborers, retirees from all walks of life.  When a production is in progress, we become carpenters, technicians, artists, actors, singers, directors, seamstresses and creators!  Our payment is the opportunity to meet new friends, the applause of an audience, and the satisfaction of being part of a great production!

Fall Production

Ain't She Sweet

Harriet Gunther's  Chicago Boarding house for young ladies almost loses its good reputation in a single night in 1925. Three gangsters pose as new "help", a movie star and his director take refuge there, a writer looks for the girl of his dreams, and father & son tycoons insist on impressing many of the girls while a nosey neighbor is sure Harriet is running a speakeasy.   Will any of the girls fall for the intruders?  Chicago in the 20's - it's  exactly what made the decade roar!

  • $10 Adults
