The Pitch Project
Westmont Drama includes an after-school performance program which produces six shows a year including a fall play, a faculty play, a winter play, a student/faculty talent show, a spring musical, and a one act play festival. The production season is chosen by the students. Each May, the drama classes pitch 20-30 different plays and musicals to their respective classes. Each class chooses 2-3 plays and 2-3 musicals from those that have been pitched. Those 6-9 choices are placed on a ballot and put to a vote at an open Drama Club meeting which any Westmont student can attend. This exciting, collaborative process has a hidden instructional value in that students learn about 20-30 shows and thus broaden their knowledge of theatre history as they work through the process.
