Actors are required to audition for every show. Students attend practices every week leading up to opening night and put in close to 12 hours a week. Students working on the production crew help to build sets, run lights, sound and manage what goes on backstage, as well as learn the tricks of the technical trade.


Mr. Dennis Moore has been  the head of the Drama & Music Department at Newark Catholic for nine years. Mr. Moore and many other NC Faculty put in long hours to put on outstanding productions every year.The costumes and set designs are made possible through gracious volunteer and friends of Newark Catholic. Choreography is designed and taught by Dianne Hodge. 


The theater department at Newark Catholic High School has had a rich tradition of quality theatrical productions and has been an inspiration for generations of students since 1958. Newark Catholic students have performed many well-known shows, including “Sound of Music”, Oklahoma, and “Les Miserables”. The first production ever performed by the NC Theater Department was in 1958, which was the Annual Senior Play.

A group of 40 Newark Catholic Students and two Faculty members will depart for Washington D.C. on Wednesday, January 21 to attend March For Life 2015.


The March for Life began as a small demonstration and rapidly grew to be the largest pro-life event in the world. The peaceful demonstration that has followed on this somber anniversary every year since 1973 is a witness to the truth concerning the greatest human rights violation of our time, abortion.


During this time we are especially reminded of the importance, necessity and power of prayer in our lives. We would be most grateful if you would consider praying for those attending March for Life in these days leading up to the march, and more importantly, for the ultimate reason we exist— that a culture of life be fully restored in the United States. 


The group will attend a Rally on Thursday, January 22 at Noon and the March will begin at 1:00 p.m. To watch a Live Stream of the March go to
