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 6th 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.

When one thinks about a classic romantic comedy, exploding with moments of farcical mayhem, You Can’t Take It With You is as classic as it gets. Written in 1936 by George S. Kaufman and Moss Hart, the play has tickled generations of playgoers. It won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 1937 and Academy Awards for Best Picture in 1938. It is one of the most popular and successful plays of modern times. At first the Sycamores seem mad, but it is not long before we realize that if they are mad, the rest of the world is madder.
