We hope many of you had a chance to enjoy at least some of the January concerts and choral performances, and to benefit from the insights of our January speaker, Maria Trozzi. February continues to bring parents more wonderful opportunities to socialize and enjoy the arts and athletics at Nobles, including some special performances by many Middle School actors and dancers. Please be sure to mark your calendars for these upcoming highlights.

First up in February are the student-directed plays with performances on Thurs., Feb. 2 (5 p.m.) and Fri., Feb. 3 (6:30 p.m.). There are three separate plays, each cast and directed by a member of the Class I, and featuring a variety of Nobles actors.

Also on Fri., Feb. 3, at 8 a.m., the Parents’ Association is hosting a coffee in the Foster Gallery and invites all parents to enjoy the current exhibit of “A Girl and Her Room” by current parent and photographer Rania Matar. We would love to see you there!

Please come support our very own thespians in this year’s Middle School play, Drop Dead Juliet, with performances in Lawrence Auditorium on Feb. 15 and 16. A tremendous amount of hard work and rehearsals go into these productions and you will be delighted by the end result.

The morning of Feb. 15, please join the PA for an informative discussion by Bill Bussey as he shares his observations and humor about tone and culture at Nobles.

After the long Presidents’ Day weekend, the Nobles Theatre Collective’s winter production of Museum is also not to be missed, especially if you have not yet had the opportunity to attend an NTC mainstage event. The high quality of all aspects of the show —behind the scenes and on the stage—is truly remarkable. Tickets must be purchased and there are shows Wed., Feb. 22, through Sat., Feb. 25.

Also on the afternoon of Fri., Feb. 24, it will be a treat to see our Middle School and Upper School dancers perform routines they have choreographed and rehearsed under the direction of Jillian Grunnah in a wide range of dance styles during the winter afternoon dance program.

On Feb. 24 and 25, come watch the much-anticipated Nobles vs. Milton games to cap off the winter season. Look up individual game/match times on the Nobles calendar and come cheer on your athletes and their friends!

Finally, be on the lookout for an announcement in the weekly messages for a planning coffee at the end of February or early March. We are looking forward to the annual 'Round the World (RTW) surprise lunch for middle schoolers and welcome anyone who would like to help in any way!
