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

Fall/Winter Productions:


It's A Wonderful Life


This Christmas fantasy comedy-drama is based on the film of the same name and has been one of the most loved stories traditionally viewed at the Christmas season.  It is the story of George Bailey, from the small town of Bedford Falls, whose dreams of escape and adventure have been squashed by family obligation and civic duty.  Clarence, his guardian angel has to descent on Christmas Eve to save him from despair and to remind him that his has been, after all, a wonderful life!  This fine dramatization not only celebrates the faith of the season, it also celebrates the American philosophy of life:  hard work, fair play and the love and support of one's family and community will be rewarded.
