About Our Tradition
Jacksonville High School was the first school in Onslow County to begin offering students the opportunity to engage in high quality musical productions. In 1964 students opened the curtain on Oaklahoma! A Rogers and Hammerstein production. Since that time, there have been over 50 years of productions staged at "Broadway on Henderson." What an amazing tradition!
The goals of the program have expanded to develop students' theater skills beyond the musical. The Fall Play started in 2009 with The Importance of Being Earnest and continues to provide students the opportunity to engage students in the theater arts.
