This year’s house will include many new rooms and hair-raising surprises.  Over 100 members of North’s Drama Club create the spine-chilling cast of characters that inhabit the house.  The popular non-scary flashlight tours will continue to be available during all hours the house is open for younger children or those “weak of heart.”  Carnival games, a mini-inflatable haunted house for little ones, a costume contest, and a bake sale in the commons will also be featured.  Proceeds from the haunted house will help fund theatre activities and productions at North.  Ron Parker, North theatre director and Drama Club advisor states, “ We’re very proud to be one of theoldest and longest-running Halloween attractions in the area.   We’ve been told over and over that “Night to Dismember” is one of the best values and most enjoyable haunted houses in the Fox Valley.  Patrons get more scare for their money.  The students have a great time planning and designing the rooms that make up the house.  We have an advantage of being located our theatre, which allows us to utilize theatrical effects. And, of course, the house is filled with theatre students who find a perfect outlet for their talents.   Everyone has a great time.”   For further information, contact Ron Parker, theatre director at 832-4300 or e-mail at

Appleton North High School is thrilled to announce The Hunchback of Notre Dame as our musical in March 2017! Based on the Victor Hugo novel and songs from the Disney film, it is the only stage collaboration from two masters of the American musical theatre, composer Alan Menken and lyricist Stephen Schwartz. In this brand new production, a lush, emotionally rich score highlights the music’s orchestral power and choral beauty in an intimate retelling of the famous love story.

The Afghanistan/Wisconsin Verbatim Theatre Project is a new play about the experiences of Wisconsin veterans of the Afghanistan conflict, taken directly from personal interviews with veterans collected over the summer of 2015. With the mission of fostering better understanding between vets and non-vets, the A/W Project takes audiences inside the reality of training, deployment, and re-entry into the civilian world.

POST-CRESCENT: North Theatre fueled by teamwork, dedication

"The thing I appreciate so much about him (Parker) is that he encourages these kids to be their best selves, probably even pushes them to achieve more than he ever thought they could, and he does it without this competitiveness," Biskupic said. "He encourages them to be kind."
