2017 NHETG State Theatre Festival
at Gilford High School
April 7 & 8

    The primary goal of the New Hampshire Educational Theatre Guild (NHETG), is to support, promote and celebrate the dramatic arts at the high school level in the
Granite State.  Hosting theatre festivals, student conferences, and teacher professional development workshops, the NHETG fosters growth through sharing. 
           

THE THEATRE FESTIVALS

Its signature event, the state-wide theatre festival, annually brings together high school theatre programs from around the state.  Each of these festivals consists of 6-8 high schools performing their one-act shows or one another.  After each
performance, the festival provides structured, constructive feedback both from the fellow student audience members as well as theatre professionals.  At the end of the festival, awards are
presented to students and groups for outstanding performances and technical elements.

From these Regional Festivals, shows are selected to perform at the NHETG State Drama Festival.  The structure of this festival is similar to that of the regionals.  Finally, two shows are chosen from the State Drama
Festival to perform at the New England Drama Festival, which is held in a different New England state each year.

"What I like about the NHETG festivals is the experience. Having 24 schools come together that share the same interest as you, who also help you and continue to support you on the journey. Meeting people and facing challenges you don't expect along the way. And the rush you feel after performing your show, nothing is better than that."

THE FALL STUDENT WORKSHOPS

    The NHETG also sponsors Theatre Workshops at Plymouth State University in the fall.  Whether your interests lie on stage or behind the scenes, this day of workshops has something for everyone.  Here is the first opportunity of the school year for high school theatre programs to get to know each other, and learn a great deal about their craft in the process.  

THE SPRING TEACHERS CONFERENCE

    Newly minted in 2016, the NHETG has partnered with the Winnipesaukee Playhouse and the New Hampshire Educational Theatre Association, to create a unique opportunity for teachers to gain professional development hours.
