Welcome To Southwest Theatre

Southwest is home to many different shows during the school year, taking place in the Auditorium and Black Box Theater. The Southwest Theatre program produces the Footlights Musical, the Mainstage Play, the One Acts, and the mainstage musical. This year we will be producing "Once on this Island," "Up the Down Staircase" and "Sweet Charity." A part of the Theatre program of Southwest is the Unhinged Student Theatre Company. The company produces four shows which are student produced, directed and acted. Everyone is encouraged to participate and it is a fun time for all involved. Students learn about producing shows and get first hand experience in theatre.
