 Who we are:

Glenbard West Theatre is open to all students who are interested in performance or working behind the scenes. For those interested in the technical and business aspects of the productions, we will train you, no experience is necessary. We present three main stage productions each year including a fall comedy, winter drama, and spring musical. In addition, we have a studio series in the Black Box that features new student playwrights.

Theatre Club meetings are held every Thursday at 2:45 pm in the MURC (Room 303). This is where students learn how to get involved in upcoming shows and enjoy fun social events. Members of the Theatre Club who accrue enough points by active involvement throughout the year are honored at the Theatre Awards Night in May and are inducted into the International Thespian Society, an honor society for high school theatre students. The sponsor is Mr. Fox.
