The Theatre Department at Newman Smith High School began in 1977 under the direction of Mildred A. Peveto.
Newman Smith Theatre is proud to continue the tradition of excellence, dedication, and professionalism towards the Theatrical Arts that she began. We have a rich history of One Act Play achievements, dedicated Directors, and highly motivated and talented students.
NSHS received a Special Emphasis Award in Fine Arts/Performing Arts Education from the National Endowment For The Art in 1998. In 2018 we received 4th place at the 5A State UIL One Act Play Contest.
