The Northstar Parent Production Group
Established in 2009 as a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, the Westhill NPPG's objectives are to:
produce the spring musical
provide financial and volunteer support for the various theater productions and programs at Westhill High School
bring together students, families, school staff, and the community to enjoy a vibrant theater program at Westhill High School.
The NPPG is proud of the dedication shown by our parents who support their children's passions for the performing arts, whether their children are performers, part of the tech crew or musicians. All parents are automatically members of the NPPG. We meet 5-6 times each year. If you are not on our mailing list and would like to be, email us at email@example.com or enter your information here.
The Westhill Northstar Parent Production Group (NPPG) consists of dedicated parent volunteers who support all aspects of Westhill High School's afterschool theater programs.
In addition to being the producers of the annual spring musical, much of what the Westhill NPPG does involves fundraising to supplement the allocation from the Stamford Public Schools which is not enough to cover our costs. Westhill High School has a long history of producing outstanding theatrical productions and provides low-cost, live performances to the community at large. In addition, the Westhill NPPG frequently bring students to perform outside the school at area senior centers and community events. Our well-regarded theater program and talented students have earned numerous awards from the Connecticut High School Musical Theatre Awards and by the CT Drama Association. Many Northstar Playmakers & Tech crew graduates have gone on to pursue performing and technical theater in college and beyond.
