Performing Arts

Whiting High School is proud of its Performing Arts! During the school year, you can hear our bands play, be entertained by multiple plays and One Acts, as well as listen to our WHS Choir!


The WHS Drama Club consists of students that act, design sets, costumes, scenery, painters, lighting and sound. The club is active throughout the year.

In November, seniors direct high school and middle school students in one-act plays. In January, Nathan Hale Elementary's Third Grade Theatre presents a show for the school and also the general public. This year's show was Coco. Past productions have included Peter Pan, Pinocchio, Snoopy, and Annie, Jr. In March, the high school presents their spring production. Past productions have included Adam's Family, Aladdin, Junie B. Jones, and The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee. In May, the Whiting Middle School Players have a performance. Past productions include I Hate Shakespeare, Miss Nelson is Missing and Miss Electricity. In the summer, the Whiting Middle School Players participate in an improv class.

As you can see, we are very busy throughout the year.
