Addams Family
The Addams Family features an original story, and it’s every father’s nightmare. Wednesday Addams, the ultimate princess of darkness, has grown up and fallen in love with a sweet, smart young man from a respectable family – a man her parents have never met. And if that weren’t upsetting enough, Wednesday confides in her father and begs him not to tell her mother. Now, Gomez Addams must do something he’s never done before – keep a secret from his beloved wife, Morticia. Everything will change for the whole family on the fateful night they host a dinner for Wednsday’s ‘normal’ boyfrend and his parents.

A Mickey Christmas Thursday Night

North Pointe’s 3rd hour theater class put forth a performance to remember on Thursday night. This talented cast led by John Fitzner as Mickey Mouse had the audience laughing and enjoying the true meaning of Christmas as they delivered their performance of this years production, ‘A Mickey Christmas’. The stunning electric lights parade gave a great and colorful start to a well performed adaptation of ‘A Christmas Carol’. Writer Chris Holtzem said, “This show has been so fun to work on and to watch the students bring some of my favorite Disney characters to life is incredible. Seeing the growth from these actors is simply fantastic and I can’t wait to see what they achieve in their future of acting.”

A MICKEY CHRISTMAS ‘OPENING NIGHT’

In the fantastic opening night of ‘A Mickey Christmas’ North Pointe’s 1st hour Theatre Class led by Peter Carlson (Mickey Mouse) took the audience through an adaptation of Dickens classic “A Christmas Carol.” Mickey was visited by many of his cartoon friends as they helped him find the true meaning of Christmas. The cast led the audience through this version of the play with characters from all different ages of Disney animation to help tell this heart warming and spirit lifting tale.  “I’m not sure if I’ve ever been more proud of a cast than I am of these kids tonight.” Said Director Dave Coffman.  “These students are amazing; growing to not only love the idea of performing (which they did not in the beginning) but becoming performers as well.”

HS Falcon Players Presents 12 Angry Jurors

The first show of the year for the Falcon Players is one that will not soon be forgotten; for a multitude of reasons.  “12 Angry Jurors” for many, will be remember for its intense dialogue, incredibly strong characters and the ease at which these 13 actors told the story of how these twelve strangers deliberated the fate of a young man.  The show was a first for North Pointe; presenting a serious drama with very little set, lights or gimmicks and simply resting on the shoulders of the actors to tell the story…something they did beautifully.  The actors all worked incredibly hard on creating their characters, actually adding bits of themselves, in the hopes that the audience would be able to ‘feel’ their show instead of simply ‘watching’ it…a goal that Director Dave Coffman said he felt the cast had “most definitely” achieved.  For others; it will be remembered as the show they were sorry they missed, sadly a car accident and power outage forced us to cancel the last show of the run leaving many without the opportunity to see and experience the hard work of these young, dedicated performers.  While the cast was disappointed with the cancellation they were all grateful and excited to be a part of such a wonderful production and are looking forward to what the future of North Pointe Theatre has to offer.  “Thank you to all who supported us and again, apologies to those who were unable to see it,” said the Director, Mr. Coffman.

Twelve Angry Jurors

A 19 year old man has just stood trial for the fatal stabbing of his father, to those in the courtroom it looks like an open-and-shut case. However, one of the jurors is not convinced of the man’s guilt and begins opening the others’ eyes to the facts. Various testimonies are re-examined and the murder is re-enacted and a new murder threat is born before their eyes. Tempers get short, arguments grow heated, and the juniors become angry. The jurors final verdict and how they reach it will electrify the audience and keep them on the edge of their seats.

HS Falcon Players – Get Smart

The Falcon Players’ spring play performances of Get Smart were amazingly executed and incredibly funny. The play was adapted by Christopher Sergel from the original show created by Mel Brooks and Buck Henry. It incorporated a lot of the humorous antics that were in the show such as the shoe phone, Mr. Big, and Smart’s oddball personality. All of the performances had great audiences that clearly enjoyed watching the show. The process of the production was one to remember as Ms. Argenbright explained that “every director wants to reach the point where he/she can let go of the reins and enjoy the product of hard work, and that is exactly what happened in this case.”GetSmart
