Westwood Drama Club

The Westwood Drama Club is open to students in grades 9 – 12. Each year, the Club begins work in August for an annual show that is performed in early November. The Club competes in the GISA Region One Act Competition, and also does several community performances.

Westwood has been fortunate to lay claim to numerous Region titles and many state appearances.

The Club is under the direction of faculty sponsor Azalee Vereen.

Drama Club Awards

Listed below you will find a synopsis of awards received by the club. We are very proud of our tradition of Excellence!

Each year, the GISA selects only five actors per classification for All-State Acting Awards. Westwood has been fortunate to have students selected for this outstanding honor.

*In 2007 and 2008 the GISA did not have a competition, but ranked plays according to another scoring system. Westwood School received the highest possible ranking of superior in those years.
