Theatre

The Theatre program at Faith West is comprised of Theatre Class and Theatre Performance.

Theatre Class enables students to further develop drama skills for the purpose of becoming confident and efficient in expressing God’s truth.  Jesus commonly used storytelling, narratives, and dramatic readings to engage His audience and have them understand truth on a deeper, more personal level. Drama is an excellent opportunity for students of all skill levels to become confident presenters of the gospel.  Theatre also teaches that students have many skills. It teaches them to work hard, practice new skills, aim high, reach for excellence, and work cooperatively in a group. Classroom instruction will teach students the history and terms of drama and the styles of acting.

Theatre Performance is open to all students in 7th through 12th grade. It allows students to continue to participate in a theatre production without being in JH or HS theatre class. Participation in this production is considered as an extracurricular activity.  Each student who earns a part in the show — whether on stage, behind the scenes, or in the technical area — is required to commit to the rehearsal schedule and other requirements.

Legally Blonde JR. follows the transformation of Elle Woods as she tackles stereotypes, snobbery and scandal in pursuit of her dreams. When Elle’s boyfriend, Warner, dumps her and heads to Harvard, claiming she’s not “serious” enough, Elle takes matters into her own hands, crafting a showy song-and-dance personal essay and charming her way into law school. Befriending classmate, Emmett, and spunky hairdresser, Paulette, along the way, Elle finds that books and looks aren’t mutually exclusive. As Elle begins outsmarting her peers, she realizes that law may be her natural calling after all. Based on the award-winning Broadway musical and the smash hit motion picture, Legally Blonde The Musical JR. is a fabulously fun journey of self-empowerment and expanding horizons. The show’s instantly recognizable songs are filled with humor, wit and sass — leaving cast members and audiences alike seeing pink!
