West Side Stage
West Side Stage is a club that deals with theatre. This club is not required to do any shows but more mere fun. This is how you can meet people that you really don't know. We do activities throughout the year like going to other schools shows or a car wash plus more! The fee to join is $50 a person but that includes shows at West and North and Lee's Summit High School plus Ruskin High School. Also, with your purchase of the membership you get a shirt from WSS plus the opportunity to participate in our many activities. If you want to letter in theatre then you must be a part of WSS and complete the checklist of things to do.
