    “The object of art is to give life shape.” — William Shakespeare


The Performing Arts Council is committed to providing every child at Southwest High School with a high-quality performing arts experience. Studies measuring creative thinking, critical thinking, problem solving and reasoning have found these functions increase and improve when arts education is added to the educational mix. Additionally, the Performing Arts offer opportunities, friendships and growth unlike any other school-based activity.

Volunteering is a fun and easy way to be involved with your kids and community: We always need people to help in the theaters, shows, online and at school. Learn more about volunteer opportunities.
