The Story

Westlake High School Theatre has been selected to perform in the world’s largest and most prestigious arts festival in the world as part of the American High School Theatre Festival (AHSTF). Each August, Edinburgh, Scotland becomes the most magical and exciting place on earth as performing artists from all over the world come to Scotland to take part in the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

Westlake High School was selected by the AHSTF Board of Advisors to represent the United States as part of the 2017 AHSTF program. The Board reviews all completed applications and identifies the top high schoolsbased on their most recent bodies of work, awards, community involvement and recommendations.

As you can imagine, our theatre arts students, their parents, and teachers are heavily involved in fundraising activities to finance this two-week long adventure to Scotland and England. 

We are looking for contributions in any amount to help support these young artists in their journey to the Fringe!  (If everyone contributed the price of a fancy coffee, we'd reach our goal in no time!)

Greetings everyone!  It's been a wild ride since our February 12-Hour Play Fest!  We raised about $2000 through that fundraiser, and we're so grateful for the support.

We have two more payments to make on our Scotland adventure; the largest one comes up in June, and we'd really like to be able to cut that payment in half for our performers.  Please consider donating and/or sharing this fundraiser with your friends, family, and co-workers to help make the Fringe Festival a reality for these students!
