Tiger Act is our theatre club here at Lee’s Summit High School and is the umbrella organization for all things theatre in our department!  We meet once a month on the first Tuesday of the month in the PAC @ 2:40.

Students are capable in lettering in theatre if they are a member of Tiger Act and meet the requirements during the course of the year!

The Tiger Act club sponsors several activities throughout the year such as our annual lock-in, Trick or Treat So Tots Can Eat, going as a group to see the shows at other local high schools, State Thespian Conference, The International Thespian Conference, as well as traveling abroad to places like New York & London!

So how do you get involved?!  We’re glad you asked!  It’s as simple as attending the meetings and paying your yearly $25.00 dues! At the meetings you find out everything that is up and coming and how you can get involved!
Tiger act is also a great way to get plugged in and involved in our shows on the various crews we offer!  If you are interested be sure to attend the next meeting!
