Our Shows

LHHS Theatre is a Student Centered and Production driven Theatre Department producing 3-4 shows per academic year!

Children’s Show

Each year, LHHS Theatre produces a children’s show for student of the Lake Highlands feeder schools. This is a wonderful opportunity for the youngsters to be introduced to the high school theatre program and ignite their desire to be part of the program when they reach LHHS. It also gives our high school students a chance to be role models and to interact with these young thespian recuits.

Fall Show

The fall show is an opportunity to explore a wide variety of theatrical shows geared toward general audiences.

Musical

Our annual musical is a big part of the LHHS Theatre tradition. We begin auditions, rehearsals and workdays in October and the musical typically takes place during late January. We draw talented students from all the corners of the school including band, choir, dance, cosmetology, the football team…. and anywhere else we can recruit them!

Spring Show

The spring show is another opportunity for our students to explore a variety of theatrical shows which are geared toward general audiences.

One Act Play

U.I.L.* One Act Play is the Theatre Department’s contribution to the academic competition. During the spring semester, the department produces a show that must adhere to prescribed guidelines and rules. It is a fun yet challenging experience that tests creativity, talent and mindset. LHHS has a strong tradition of advancing several rounds deep in competition and we are excited about future opportunities to get to State!

*UIL stands for University Interscholastic League Theatre. It is a competition that was founded in 1927 and is the largest high school play production contest or play festival in the world. More than 14,000 Texas high school students in more than 1,000 plays participate in 300 plus contests, which take place from the beginning of March through the three-day, 40-production State Meet.

It is with great joy that I join our Lake Highlands Theatre department. A fine arts education can do much for the growth of students – both personally and professionally. As a graduate of RISD Theatre, I am thrilled to give back to the community that taught me so much. When I’m not working, I enjoy baking, going to live performances, and spending time with my incredibly supportive husband and parents.

I am grateful for the opportunities that teaching at Lake Highlands presents on a daily basis from the great students, incredible community, supportive faculty/staff and much more. Technical Theatre grants a myriad of possibilities and avenues for students to explore a wide range of vocations. Working with students to realize productions and events is so fulfilling and truly a blessing. Outside of school I enjoy spending time with my extremely understanding and supportive family, working with my hands, and gaming.
