North High Junior Players To Present Captivating Spring Play

The North High School Fine and Performing Arts Department’s Junior Players are proud to announce their upcoming spring play, Can I Tell You a Secret? Performances are scheduled for Friday, April 5 and Saturday, April 6 at 7:30 p.m., and Sunday, April 7 at 3 p.m. in the Bernard Kaplan Auditorium at North High, 35 Polo Rd.

“The students are really excited about this play. It’s a unique theatrical experience unlike anything you’ve ever seen,” says Chris Giordano, North High theatre director. “In my second year at North High, I’m excited to present a piece that pushes the boundaries of traditional theatre.”

Can I Tell You a Secret? is a thrilling production that promises to captivate audiences with its unique blend of Documentary Theatre and Horror elements. It debuted at the 2018 International Thespian Festival in Lincoln, Nebraska. In its short existence, it has taken the educational theatre world by storm with over 424 productions to date. “I’m thrilled that North High is just the sixth school in New York to produce it thus far,” adds Mr. Giordano.

In a small California town, an inexplicable incident unfolds during a high school play, where every member of the audience, save one, falls into unconsciousness. Drawing from interviews with witnesses, first responders, and investigators, the play unfolds in a documentary-style format, weaving together the threads of this mysterious event. As the narrative unfolds, audiences will find themselves drawn deeper into a web of intrigue and danger, discovering that the events of the past may not be as dormant as they seem.

Don’t miss the opportunity to experience this unnerving, exhilarating, and wildly inventive production brought to life by the talented students of North High. The show is produced by special arrangement with Playscripts, Inc. (
Limited tickets are available for purchase in advance through the North High website: Tickets are $15 for adults and $10 for students and senior citizens (65+). Tickets may also be available for purchase at the door, cash only.

While all are welcome to attend, please note that this production is a psychological thriller, suitable for ages 10 and up. For more information, contact Mr. Giordano at [email protected].
