Lewis and Clark High School has been building a reputation for excellence in musical theatre and drama across many generations of students, several of whom have gone on to make a living in the performing arts. Yet far more of our graduates have applied the lessons of teamwork, preparation, and poise developed on our stage while achieving success in more traditional careers.
As recent testament to our outstanding product, LCHS was one of fifty schools selected to represent the United States at the American High School Theatre Fringe Festival in Edinburgh, Scotland. LC Musical Productions have been nominated for TWENTY-TWO 5th Avenue High School Musical Theatre Awards in the last four years alone. In 2008, our production of Miss Saigon was awarded “Outstanding Lighting Design” and Mia Yoshida was named “Best Actress” in the state. In 2010, our production of Guys and Dolls took home the honor for “Best Set Design”. It is a remarkable achievement for a public high school to have earned these honors over the dozens of fine statewide private and arts-specific institutions under consideration. Aside from faculty salaries, DRAMA receives no direct funding from the school district or state.
Our uncommon entertainment value is treasured by many theatergoers in the community. LCHS benefits from popular and critical acclaim that goes far beyond “friends and family” attendance. Tickets and concession sales for our two musicals and one play per year cover 60-70% of our annual operating budget. Fundraisers and patron donations make up an additional 10%. The Drama Boosters are trying to enlist help from the community to close the remaining shortfall.
