The Harvard-Westlake Theatre Program’s central goal is to support students as they develop an artistic voice and cultivate a passion for creative collaboration. We offer classes in acting techniques, costuming, stagecraft, and playwriting, as well as opportunities for students of all experience levels to participate in performances of plays, musicals, improvisation, and student-written work. Coursework and co-curricular projects are designed to help students strengthen technique and gain tools that we hope will lead them to use the art form to push against traditional modes and stereotypes. We think of ourselves as a theatre “company,” a group of like-minded artists working together over time to expand the expectations of what theatre can be, both at Harvard-Westlake and beyond.
