Be a star forever on our NorthSTAR WALL
ATTENTION ALL PAST AND PRESENT NORTHSTARS!
You’ve made your mark on stage or behind the scenes, now leave your mark on the hallowed halls of Westhill — the auditorium’s NorthSTAR WALL, to be precise! Buy a star for yourself, your child, or even a fellow Northstar.
Stars are made of gold acrylic, are engraved with your own, personal message and will permanently reside on the entrance wall of Westhill’s auditorium,
to be seen and enjoyed for years to come.
Join us for the NorthSTAR WALL Reveal Mocktail Party
Saturday, November 30, 2020 • 5:30pm-6:30pm
Westhill High School Lower Lobby Please RSVP when purchasing your star.
Stars can be purchased year-round, but to get your personalized star up in time for the Reveal, be sure to finalize your purchase by November 14, 2020.
Program Book Ads
Want to salute a performer, techie, artist, teacher, parent or even the whole club? How about just getting your business recognized by a great audience?
Ads in any one of our program books throughout the year is a great way to support our productions. And if it can also get your business recognized? Or wish someone to "break a leg?" Well, then it's a win-win!
To place an ad in The Mystery of Edwin Drood program, please contact Nancy at firstname.lastname@example.org.
ADD DEADLINE EXTENDED

(OLD DEADLINE WAS THE 12TH)
On February 24, the Northstar Playmakers will be holding our own single day of fundraising— Northstar Donation Day!*
Please consider helping us reach our goal of $7,500 by giving whatever you can on Northstar Donation Day.
To the right you will see a sampling of just how your donations help support Westhill High School’s award-winning theater program. It is through your donations that students are able to participate in a myriad of theater productions, many with professional sound, lighting and set design and led by industry professionals. Through these productions, as well as FREE theater workshops and improv classes throughout the year, our students forge unlikely friendships, overcome anxiety, and gain a variety of skills ranging from projecting their voices to programming a lighting board!
Our programs really do rely on YOUR support! We thank you in advance and look forward to reaching our goal with you on February 24!
* in lieu of Fairfield County Giving Day
