Theater is a unique form of artistic expression requiring contributions from many different disciplines in order to create a polished product. Being part of an activity requiring this type of collaboration teaches responsibility and the importance of teamwork while allowing students to enhance their skills. At Seattle Lutheran, we feel strongly that all students, regardless of experience level, should have the opportunity to be a part of the production. It’s here where students can take part in the enriching world of theater.
In addition to an elective drama class, Seattle Lutheran offers an after-school drama club that produces two full-length productions each year in November and April. Students are involved in all aspects of producing the shows including, but not limited to, acting, stage management, set construction, scenic painting, props, costume design, and construction and lighting. Actors are given parts through an audition process; all levels of experience are welcome and appreciated. Productions in the last five years have included one-act and full-length plays in a variety of styles, including Broadway musicals, Shakespearian comedies, 1940’s radio plays, monologues, and titles from famous play writes such as Neil Simon and Alfred Uhry.
