Patrons

Dear Friends of Theatre Arts,

Silver Hawk Theatre is soaring at Lincoln Southwest High School! In our first fifteen years, we have created a nationally recognized tradition of theatre excellence by producing year after year of successful seasons of outstanding productions and by giving our students the finest theatre education and training.

In 2006, Silver Hawk Theatre received an “Outstanding School Award” from the Educational Theatre Association. In 2007, our production of BLACK ELK SPEAKS received a prestigious invitation to perform on the main stage at the International Thespian Festival and also a Chief Standing Bear Award from the Nebraska Commission on Indian Affairs. Also in 2007, our former principal, Mr. Jerry Wilks received the National Administrator Award for his support of LSW Theatre.  We also were named the Nebraska Champion and National Runner-Up in USA Weekend’s High School Musical Showstopper Contest.  In 2010, our director, Bob Henrichs, was the recipient of the first Outstanding Theatre Educator Award.  And in 2011, our Theatre Administrative Assistant, “Jake” Sedivy, was the first recipient of the first Honorary Thespian of the Year Award. In 2012 Bob Henrichs was inducted into the Educational Theatre Associations Hall Of Fame. In 2015, we received the Outstanding Musical Theatre Production, and the Outstanding Ensemble Number, Lead Actor, Actresses, and Supporting Actress awards from the Nebraska High School Theatre Awards for our production of WHITE CHRISTMAS.  We were once again given an invitation to perform on the main stage at the International Thespian Festival and again received the “Outstanding School Award” from the Educational Theatre Association.  In 2016, we again received the NHSTA for Outstanding Musical Theatre Production and The Outstanding Ensemble Number, Lead Actor, & Actress for our production of SINGIN’ IN THE RAIN, with our Outstanding Actor winning and then participating in the National Competition in NYC.  And in 2017, MARY POPPINS was also recognized for Outstanding Musical Theatre Production, Outstanding Ensemble Number, and Lead Actor, with that student qualifying as a National finalist. We are proud of our accomplishments and excited to announce our sixteenth season!

We would like to offer you the opportunity to support your local high school theatre. In return, we will provide you with some special benefits. It is people like you who help make Silver Hawk Theatre a success! Since our doors opened five years ago, our theatre program has proudly operated in the BLACK! We hope that you will be one of the many local businesses and individuals who will enjoy our shows by responding to our offer. Community support will enable us to continue our nationally recognized tradition of theatre excellence at LSW

Many people in our community are unaware that a theatre program needs support. Theatre involves much more than memorizing lines and performing on stage. Theatre also encourages our kids to stay in school and develop the knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary to be successful individuals throughout their lives. I am sure you recall special highlights of your high school days. Many times these highlights were extracurricular activities that built your confidence and let you become somebody. Theatre is definitely a confidence-building activity at Southwest. Each student develops self-confidence, self-awareness, initiative, responsibility, dedication, leadership, creative thinking, problem solving, goal setting, time management, group dynamics, and group decision making skills. Students learn all of this in a supportive, creative, and safe environment.

We have over 200 students involved in our shows, but they aren’t all on stage. Many work and learn behind the scenes on such things as set construction, costumes, make-up, or publicity. Student crews run all of the scene changes, and sound and lighting equipment. Your support will help us ensure that each student of the 10% of the entire student body involved in Silver Hawk Theatre is an integral part of our program, and so are you!

We invite you to attend all four of our productions in our sixteenth season and to purchase one of our season patron passes. A season pass provides you with reserved tickets in the location of your choice to all of our shows, but also includes an important donation that will support our program. Please call after each show’s “tickets on sale date” to reserve your seats. You will find the season pass packages available listed below. Your donation, of course, is tax deductible. If you have any questions about the program, please call the theatre box office 436-1335, or e-mail me at bhenrich@lps.org. Also, you can “like” us on Facebook at  Silver Hawk Theatre.

We sincerely thank you for appreciating our creative efforts, and we thank you for your support of Silver Hawk Theatre!

Sincerely,

Robert J. Henrichs
Director of Theatre, Lincoln Southwest High School
