The Star Players this year include some pictured here: Adrionna Hernandez, Tiffany Reynolds, Lexis Devault, Ivy Polkinghorne, Summer Pebworth, Bryna Nathan, Alexis Buxbaum, Bradley Ross, Logan Scott, Dylan Hedemark, Ian Clairday. Also, Kellsy Burk, Katie Tuttle, Rachel Littlefield.
The Star Players this year would start off in Trailer #43 as O'Neill Hall underwent safety updates. The actors did find the space to rehearse for the Shakespeare Festival but were unable to perform there. When the new year began and we were back in our digs, we prepared the ambitious The Imaginary Autopsee, a commedia del arte scene for the CSUB Spotlight festival. We then produced Neil Simon's Fools, the fourth production of the play at NHS.

Senior Star Players leaving us this year...
Dylan has been a staple in our community since his sophomore year. He has been a steady and reliable actor, dedicated from start to finish in his many roles. He has added much to the history of excellence of the Star Players.
