The drama program at Lutheran West allows students to explore their interests and improve their skills in all areas of theatre. Not only are our students actors on stage, but they also work hard behind the scenes creating sets and props, making hand-made costumes, designing light and sound plots, creating hair and makeup styles, and ushering during performances.
Our two major productions during each school year are a full-length play in the fall and a musical production in the spring. It is common for close to twenty percent of our student body to be involved in the musical, whether as on-stage talent, crew members, pit band, audio/visual technicians, costume designers, set designers, and more.
In recent years, productions have included Beauty and the Beast, Mary Poppins, The Fiddler on the Roof, 12 Angry Jurors, Father of the Bride, The Sound of Music, and more.
Students involved in our drama program can also join Lutheran West's active chapter of the International Thespian Society.
