Lewisville High School Theatre
Thank You For Supporting LHS Fine Arts
Our Mission Statement:
LHS Theatre sparks creativity, innovation and connection supporting a diverse population of students and audience members to promote a positive theatre experience in our community.
Announcing our 2023–24 Season!
A Haunted Manor
This event is not for young children; we are planning for Middle School age and older who are brave enough to enter our Haunted Manor created in the LHS Stuver Auditorium. We will scare you as you move through our interactive Haunted House event, so this is not for the faint of heart!
Show Dates: October 19, 21, & 22 (7–9:30 p.m.)
A Journey Through Time and Space Showcase
This special event will be created by LHS Harmon and LHS Killough Theatre students! It is a chance to see our new students in the spotlight.
Show Dates: To be announced in the Fall Semester
For seven years, a certain boy wizard went to a certain Wizard School and conquered evil. This, however, is not his story. This is the story of the Puffs... who just happened to be there, too. It is a tale for anyone who has never been destined to save the world.
Show Dates: November 2, 3 (7:00 p.m.), & November 5 (2:30 p.m.)
SpongeBob SquarePants The Musical
When the citizens of Bikini Bottom discover that a volcano will soon erupt and destroy their humble home, SpongeBob and his friends must come together to save the fate of their undersea world!
Show Dates: January 26, 27 (7:00 p.m.) & January 28 (2:30 p.m.)
UIL One Act Play - Eurydice
Reimagine the classic myth of Orpheus and Eurydice not through Orpheus's infamous pilgrimage to retrieve his bride but through the eyes of its heroine. Dying too young on her wedding day, Eurydice must journey to the underworld, where she reunites with her father and struggles to remember her lost love.
Show Date: March 18 (7:00 p.m.)
UIL Plays Competitions are open to the public and held during the day at different area high schools. Schedules will be posted on our site and social media as locations are announced. We also will offer one public performance at LHS Stuver Auditorium.
24 Hour Playfest
Back again for the 2nd year, this unique event begins for students on Friday night, when they get their teams and start writing, planning, learning, and producing an impressive 10-minute play. They then come together Saturday morning to spend the day on props, costumes, set design, and learning the play to present to the audience at 7 p.m.
Show Dates: April 20 (7:00 p.m.) & April 21 (2:30 p.m.)
Spring Show — To Be Announced!

LHS Theatre Booster Night Out

Prairie House Restaurant-Lewisville, East Main Street, Lewisville, TX, USA
We have great resources and information available for you on our site!
Visit https://www.lewisvilletheatre.com/ any time for the latest information. We update the home page with the latest news regularly!
This is a great location to find all the information you will need. Links and information are available here for students, volunteers, and the community. With our new Directors starting this year, we will add and update information and details about them. This is a great place to find fun photos, past memories, and all the details on the Boosters.
What do we need with all that money?
If you have seen one of our plays, you know the sets are unique and elaborate. Everything is built by the students, sometimes even the furniture, or we refurbish existing furniture. Lumber, nails, glue, paint, brushes, and other materials must be purchased. Our students make costumes, and the more elaborate ones (like Captain Hook) are rented. Material and elements added to costumes, wigs, and shoes must often be purchased. Students gain experience by learning to build, sew, and create for each show.
Did you know that each play has royalty fees that must be paid to use the script - sometimes per performance. Depending on the show and its popularity, this can be a very substantial cost. We also provide simple meals to the students the week before plays when rehearsals run late into the night. Concessions must be purchased for each show to help us earn money and provide you with refreshments during intermission. Sometimes, special equipment must be rented, like the rigging for Peter Pan. Making magic happen is a costly thing!
An essential part of the Theatre Department is educating our students. There is an annual Thespian event over a weekend at the Gaylord Texan. Students go to workshops for hands-on learning and expanding their theatre experience. We want to make that available to all our students, even if their families can't afford the fees to attend. Donations make that possible. We can also provide field trips for the students, and at the end of the year, some Seniors will receive college scholarships.
Theatre is a fun environment for our students to learn and grow. But many of the students you see on stage and the tech students you don't see behind the stage plan to make this their career. We can offer them a great start to their future with the help of funds we receive. Thank you all for every dollar. It makes what we do possible, and we really do appreciate it!
Your donations also show our students that what they do matters because of the community's and local businesses' financial support. Seeing a packed auditorium is a huge encouragement that their months of preparations and practice were worth it. Thank you for being part of our program!
