Lutheran High School Northwest’s Drama Department is open to all students at LHNW. We believe that all students should have a chance to participate in the department either onstage or behind the scenes. Our goal is to encourage students to experience the world of theatre, gaining confidence in their abilities. While it is sometimes necessary to limit the number of actors, we endeavor to put anyone with an interest in performing on the stage, and anyone with an interest in production assistance into a suitable role.  An enjoyable performance is the end result, but the journey of working together and creating art is the lasting memory. 


The drama director really believes the following to be true: 


Theatre is a Science      Theatre is History               Theatre is Math

Theatre is a Foreign Language                         Theatre is Physical Education

Theatre is Business       Theatre is Technology        Theatre is Economics


Theatre is taught in schools: 

Not because you are expected to major in theatre, 

Not because you are expected to perform all through life, 

Not so you can relax, 

Not so you can have fun, 


So you will recognize Beauty 

So you will be Sensitive 

So you will have more Love, 

More Compassion 

More Gentleness, 

In short, 

So you will be closer to God who expressed himself in the infinite Word 

and have More Life. 


Of what value will it be to make a prosperous living unless you know how to live?

That is why theatre is taught in our schools.
