The Westlake Players and its honor component, the Westlake Thespian Society are Westlake High School’s award winning theatre company. They proudly present two main stage productions each year; a play in the fall and a musical in the spring. Students participate in all aspects of the production; from performing on stage to constructing scenery, setting and operating lighting and sound equipment, designing and creating costumes, managing publicity and maintaining the theatre. Emphasis is placed on learning technique in acting, voice and dance as well as general theatre practices.
We are proud to partner with many parents and community members in all aspects of the production and are grateful for their support. Each production reaches out to the senior citizen community by offering discounted tickets as well as a complimentary buffet lunch prior to a matinee performance.
Future plans include theatre tech workshops in lighting, sound and makeup as well as masterclasses in audition technique and scene development.
