The North Hall High School Theatre program and the Hollow Horse Players exist to support students in their building of skills that will carry them through life. These skills include self-confidence, communication skills, interpersonal relationships, team building and leadership. Students will also benefit from cultural exposure, helping them to develop a more global picture of the world around us. Students, parents and staff will respect individual differences in order to help everyone involved to feel a sense of belonging. As we work on productions, we will be honest, courteous and tolerant while we build each other up. As we take into consideration our other commitments outside of the theatre, we will set expectations so that all involved can be dedicated while carefully managing their time. So that we can all be beneficiaries of a positive theatre experience we will treat each other with respect and kindness while maintaining a positive attitude, a sense of humor and a desire for excellence.
