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.

Spies, murder, love, and other trademarks of Alfred Hitchcock come to life in the style of a 1940s radio broadcast of the master of suspense’s earlier films. With The Lodger, Sabotage and The 39 Steps, Vintage Hitchcock: A Live Radio Play is a triple feature, complete with vintage commercials, that recreates a daring train chase, a serial killer’s ominous presence, and a devastating explosion through the magic of live sound effects and musical underscoring.

Leaving Iowa is a hilarious, family-friendly comedy that is a toast to the idealism and character of parents from the “greatest generation,” and a little roast of their dedication to the family road trip. It is a postcard to anyone who has ever found themselves driving alone on a road, revisiting fond memories of their youth.
