Where Talent Meets Opportunity

For over six decades, LuHi Theatre has been committed to performing high-quality, professional theatre for the whole family to enjoy. Our dedicated production staff gives our students the best educational and performance experience possible and, most importantly, keeps Jesus Christ at the center of all we do.

In LuHi's deep, rich history, we have performed a wide variety of shows. Everything from comedic to dramatic, classical to contemporary, and even audience-interactive performances gives our students a well-rounded theatre experience.

Musicals

The LuHi musical is the largest production for the performing arts department each year involving over 60 students and performing to over 3000 people a year. Our acting students work with seasoned directors and choreographers to create dynamic characters, dances, and vocals on the stage. Our technical students work alongside the PACE Center staff and parent volunteers, enhancing their knowledge of set construction, costume & makeup design, and all aspects of how a show comes together. Band students work alongside professional instrumentalists and parent volunteers in our live orchestra.

Plays & One Acts

Plays performed by LuHi Theatre give our students plenty of opportunities to excel at their craft. Shows throughout the year include:

  • Fall Show
  • Student directed one acts
  • Spring show

These productions allow our students to hone their skills and stretch their abilities with dramas, complex comedies, ancient Greek tragedies, or classical Shakespeare. These shows are performed at the Schoolhouse Theatre, part of the PACE Center theatre complex.

Choir

The Jubilate Choir is the top vocal ensemble on campus, performing 30-35 times a year. The group is an auditioned ensemble and is open to sophomore through senior students. Bel Canto is LuHi's Women's Choir. We perform at on-campus events like A LuHi Christmas and the LuHi Arts Showcase throughout the year. Men's Choir is an opportunity for the young men of LuHi to refine their musical skills. This ensemble is open to any male in the school, and there is no audition necessary.

LuHi students can join a band class or group. The Wind Ensemble plays various music throughout the year, travels to the CHSAA band festival, and performs in concerts. It's open to any individual that can play an instrument. Strings are welcome too! BluHi Jazz meets after school and performs at various events on campus and around town. Praise Band helps lead the student body in worship regularly during chapel services.
