Workshop Grandeur:
Actress Mariette Hartley speaks to us!

This year, the North Star Players had the honor of receiving professional actress Mariette Hartley for a fireside chat and semi-workshop. The meeting took place during afternoon classes in O'Neill Hall. It was the highlight of the year for the Star Players. Though Ms. Hartley is more famous than most of us realized then, she came so graciously to us after a long journey and turned our little meeting into something big. Drawing from her lifetime of acting experiences, Mariette filled our dramatic hearts with learning, wit, and warmth that has lasted these many years. Thank you, Mariette Hartley for making time for North High's young actors and inspiring us so!

The CSUB Spotlight Festival:
The Insanity of Mary Girard

Hal (CJ Szczech) offers the plan of hiding the bank robbery money in his mum's coffin.

Mary Girard (Alli Sturn) sits in the madhouse into which her husband Steven (Jason Colbert) has admitted her.

It is soon apparent why Mary sits in the asylum - Steven has a mistress (Krissy Baker).

Cast members take time to hear direction before moving on in the scene.

KaSandra, Steve, and Peter enjoy a hug.

To keep from going insane, Star Players let down their hair...
