Los Angeles Drama Club has been in residence as an after-school program at New West Charter since 2019. Students electing to participate pay a small fee (scholarships are provided to all Title I students, and are available to others on application), and are cast in a Shakespeare production. In addition to rehearsing the play, students receive instruction in vocal technique, movement technique and Shakespearean text work. The session culminates in two public performances.
Twelfth Night (in rehearsal) – December 2019
The Tempest – May 2019
