SHOWS

LHS Theatre Company productions rely on a lot of students passionate about telling stories and a lot of parents excited and willing to support the student journey and voice in theatre! Productions involve anywhere from 25-250 students, depending on the size of the show, all involved in different capacities from house crew to cast, from concessions provider to stage management. There are opportunities for everyone in the LHS Theatre Company!

Are you a student interested in participating in a production? If so, please attend a Theatre Company Meeting on the first and third Tuesday of every moth to meet our directors and stage managers. Cast members are auditioned on designated days, and crews are assigned based on student interest. We participate in other, school-wide activities as well, including Trick or Treat Street and Homecoming! Join us at a meeting to find out how to get involved! Or check out information on our Get Involved page!

Are you a parent with a student already involved or interested in being involved? Keep track of LHS Theatre Company activities by checking events on the calendar page, or rehearsal requirements on the specific show page. Parent support is always welcome, and we rely on you to help manage our large productions. If you're interested in being a Drama Mama or Papa, please visit our Get Involved page to find out how!
