West Catholic Theatre Program
SUPPORT THE THEATRE
Each year, West Catholic produces three theatre performances: a fall play, a winter Shakespeare production (in partnership with Catholic Central) and a spring musical. It costs over $18,000 to put on our musical alone. Please consider making a tax-deductible donation to be used to fund the purchase of costumes, props, set materials and any other needs of the theatre program. Your gift in support of WC Theatre provides students an opportunity to express themselves, build confidence and learn how teamwork can lead to success.
Donations can be mailed to West Catholic, Attn: Theatre Program, or made online using the Donate Now button.
