Westcliffe Drama Club

The Westcliffe Drama Club is an extremely active extra-curricular program. Every year we begin practicing in January to prepare for the Regional Festival, which is usually held in late March or early April. Practices occur twice a week. We usually present one performance at Westcliffe and do our final performance at the festival.

The Regional Festival is usually held in Maple Creek or Swift Current. It has a variety of schools performing and the adjudication is usually conducted by drama professionals from Saskatchewan. The first part of adjudication consists of back stage, which is the technical rehearsal and the behind the scene people, such as the director, sound, lights and running crew. The second part of adjudication is the front stage, which observes the actual performance of the play, including the actors and overall affect.

Over the years Westcliffe has been recognized with awards in a variety of areas. The club has been recognized for sound, lights and acting. The most recent major awards earned were Best Technical Production in 2011 and Best Technical Crew 2012. These are prestigious awards and as Westcliffe is always the smallest school it is something the school can be very proud of.
