The Arts

Performing Arts

At ANC we are proud of our rich dramatic arts program. We offer both academic and extracurricular opportunities for our students to perform. Our Performing Arts Portfolio course and our Instrumental, Choral, and Dance Ensembles provide classroom instruction in the arts. Students can also try out for our Fall Play or our Spring Play.

Students interested in the backstage aspects of theater can take courses in set design or costuming. They can also participate as members of the stage crew or by joining the sound and lighting team.


This year's Spring Musical...



Mary Poppins played to packed houses the last weekend in April and the first weekend in May. This “practically perfect” musical wowed audiences with stellar vocals and exciting dance numbers including the toe-tapping, high-flying production number “Step in Time.”

Over 70 students were involved in bringing this show to the stage--about one third of the student body. DVDs of the dress rehearsal are available for $10 as a keepsake or if you missed seeing it in person--email Sarah Waelchli if you would like one!


Recent Productions:

Each year, more than half of our student body participates in performing arts at ANC. They put on two main stage plays and three Arts Nights and a Christmas Concert. They also performed at a number of community events, learning about many aspects of theater production and performance along the way.
