Congratulations to the cast, crew and orchestra of The Sound of Music, and a big thank you to all parents who volunteered selling concessions, bringing food, hosting the cast parties, and doing a multitude of other activities. West’s high-quality productions couldn’t happen without our talented and loyal cast of parents. A special thank you to Ruth DeWeese for coordinating volunteer efforts, Susan Hetico for creating all the fangrams, Ellen Rosner for managing concessions, and Jeanne Grist and James Knight for hosting the cast parties.
We need donations for our silent auction at Broadway West. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have items/services that you would like to promote at this event.
Once the crew breaks the set, they will begin work on One Acts and Fine Arts Week. If you’ve never seen West High’s One Acts, you need to go. Third-year theater students get to sit in the director’s chair, select their cast and run a short one-act play. Not only are these shows a lot of fun, but they’re a fantastic learning experience for the students, who get to learn project management, time management, and theater production.
West Drama is a vibrant, creative and inclusive community. Friends of West High Drama supports what we believe is among the best theater offered in Madison. FWHD 2014-15 board members include:
FWHD meets monthly throughout the school year and performs three important roles: We raise funds to help maintain the quality of West High School’s fine theater program; we support theatrical opportunities in many ways through our time and our talents; and we encourage friendships and connections among parents, students, extended families, and all others interested in a strong and involved theater community. FWHD has traditionally donated $10,000 each year to the program.

Friends of West High Drama needs your help to meet the significant costs of mounting West High’s 2014-15 theater season. Did you know that, on average, the fall play costs $10,000 to produce, and the musical costs at least $30,000? These costs are well above the budget provided by MMSD to the West High Theater Department.
We rely on the generosity of West families and community members to donate more so that West High can continue to support two shows each year.
