The Westview Theatre Company is a Westview High School club run as an extracurricular program with no affiliation to Westview Drama or Theatre Tech classes (though you are encouraged to take them!). Club meetings are held Fridays at lunch in the theater and are run by the Westview Theatre Company Student Council. Play auditions, rehearsals and performances are held after school.
The Company is a registered member of National Youth Arts and attends the annual Fullerton College High School Theatre Festival and the California Educational Theatre Association (CETA) High School Theatre Festival (see Field Trips). We also participate in The Ben Vereen Awards adjudication program.

The Westview Theatre Alliance is the parent support group for the Company. A volunteer board manages the finances, publicity, and behind-the-scenes business required to support the Theatre Company. The Alliance meets once a month, and the meetings are open to all parents and others who wish to support the theatre arts at Westview High School.
This non-profit program is funded by ticket sales, fundraising, donations, and the support of local vendors and educational theatre lovers. All donations can be registered as a tax write-off with an appropriate receipt.
