Happy summer incoming Warriors,

We are so excited that you would like to learn more about the wonderful theatre department at Waubonsie Valley High School. In August, we will be hosting a free workshop sponsored by our Drama Club to welcome you. The workshop will be held in our auditorium at WVHS on Wednesday, August 11th from 5:00-7:00pm. Mark your calendars! See below for an overview of the workshop agenda:

  • Introductions

    • We want to meet you AND you will be introduced to our theatre staff and some upperclassmen involved in the program.

  • Theatre Games

  • Tour of the theatre facilities

  • Overview of season (Freshmen Play and Fall Play auditions will approach quickly!)

  • Q&A

All WV incoming freshmen interested in getting involved in the theatre program (performance and/or tech) are welcome to attend. There is no prior registration necessary. Simply show up! At this time, we are recommending all participants wear a mask. This may change as we learn more about district mask policy closer to the start of the school year. We look forward to meeting you and working with you over your next four years at WV. If you have any questions, please e-mail and See you in August!

The Waubonsie Valley Theatre program provides a wealth of opportunities for students to get involved. Students can tryout for acting roles in plays as well as participate behind the scenes by getting involved in student directing, set design and construction, costumes, props, stage management, etc.
You do not need prior experience! You will learn as you go.
