About Us

Our Mission

WaRu Theatre strives to serve students of all backgrounds, abilities, and orientations by providing a range of training and hands-on experiences that encourage growth of skills and formation of personal connections. We aim to prepare motivated students for further study and employment in theatrical industries, and to provide opportunities where students of multiple interests can flourish. 

A Variety of Events

  • Our students design, build, and perform 4+ productions each school year.
  • Our Blue's Players use theatre to teach and work with district elementary students.
  • Our Thespian troupe members participate in Kansas Thespians at state-level meetings and events.

Community and Beyond

Our students are involved in volunteer activities throughout the Topeka community as members of our Thespian troupe, in addition to performing in local theatre productions and improv comedy troupes. 

Numerous WaRu Theatre alumni have advanced into careers in theatre, including Broadway productions and tours, dramaturgy, professional lighting design, and professional stage management.
