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 the signature event, the state-wide theatre festivals, annually bring together high school theatre programs from around the state. Each of these regional festivals consists of 6-8 high schools performing their one-act shows for 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 Theatre Festival. The structure of this festival is similar to that of the regionals. Finally, two shows are chosen from the State Festival to perform at the New England Theatre 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.
