Newton Public Schools
has not purchased
any lighting instruments for the
NSHS Auditorium since 1997!

You can make a difference for our South Stage family by helping purchase new lights for the stage.


South Stage Supporters has been the sole provider of lighting upgrades for the past 25 years.   


The stage was expanded in 2004, but no additional lights were installed for the new downstage area. This created steeply angled beams and dark areas.


South Stage Supporters are raising funds to add 10 additional LED lights that would cover all downstage areas. 


Let’s shine a light on all our talented kids!
