Welcome to LWHS Theatre

We are thrilled you are here! Lake Washington High School Theatre has played an important role in the school and in the community since 1922. Our commitment is to TEACH all that theatre education has to offer. Performing is fun, but all-around education is our goal. Our shows are a culmination of everything students have learned. Ralph Waldo Emerson said “It's not the Destination, It's the journey”. That is Theatre in High school.

On this website you will find information about upcoming shows, links to purchasing tickets, our history, our mission, support opportunities, and any other theatre related events and information. If you have comments, questions, or need more information. Contact us.

The 2019-2020 school year was another exciting year for Theatre at LWHS, but not for all the right reasons. We had planned TWO great musicals: Newsies and Grease. Both shows are audience favorites, and should be lots of fun. Newsies provided a great opportunity to learn about historical events and it was a rousing success. And then, just as we had started our rehearsals for Grease, the world stopped: school was cancelled, no rehearsals, and no show.

We pride ourselves in providing an all-encompassing educational experience in drama. Students not only learn much about acting and the world skills that they derive from that. They also get a great deal of hands-on with the technical side of theater, all while having fun, making or renewing friendships, and do so in a safe and inclusive environment.

Unfortunately, we will need to pick up the pieces next school year with a new year and new shows and for that we are grateful. Stay tuned and visit here once in a while for the latest information.

And last but not least, we have an outstanding Theatre Booster organization which we hope you will join for next year. They are very active in support of LW Theatre and they have a blast doing it. Whether you want to support your student, be a community volunteer and help out, or want to financial support us, come and join us.
