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!

2018 Performance Schedule

Spring Musical:

Sister Act

This feel-good musical comedy smash based on the hit 1992 film will have audiences jumping to their feet!  When disco diva, Deloris Van Cartier witnesses a murder, she is put in protective custody in the one place the cops are sure she won't be found:  a convent!  Disguised as a nun, she finds herself at odds with both the rigid lifestyle and uptight Mother Superior.  Using her unique disco moves and singing talent to inspire the choir, Deloris breathes new life into the church and community but, in doing so, blows her cover.  Soon, the gang is giving chase, only to find them up against Deloris and the power of her newly found sisterhood.  Filled with powerful gospel music, dancing and a truly moving story, Sister Act will leave audiences breathless.  A sparkling tribute to the universal power of friendship, Sister Act is reason to REJOICE! 

Note to parents with young children attending the show:  While Sister Act is a musical comedy with fun costumes, singing and dancing which your children will enjoy, please be advised that there is the use of fake guns/gunshots during a few scenes with our "Thugs".
