Drama

Overview

The Theatre Arts Program at Western Canada High School is a nationally recognized high school theatre program which gives students the opportunity to immerse themselves in the theatre arts. Through all three levels of the program, students explore many areas of Drama with rigour and commitment. The community of young theatre artists at WCHS also provides students with a number of opportunities to develop leadership and communication skills, as well as the chance to further explore their voice as young artists. Each year we stage two major productions, attend numerous plays, participate in the Calgary High School Drama Festival and stage up to 25 young director projects. Our productions are widely regarded by the professional theatre community and command sold out audiences. All performances hold open auditions.
