Support our Students and 

Sunset High School’s Theatre Program Today!


On behalf of the more than 350 students that participate annually in the school’s many classical, musical and contemporary productions and classes, I would like to personally request your support for Sunset’s theater programs.

Each year, Sunset High School produces a diverse selection of productions, from musicals such as the classics like Bye Bye Birdie, Damn Yankees and the Wizard of Oz to some of Shakespeare’s greatest works like Much Ado About Nothing, Hamlet. and Macbeth. These productions push the boundaries of design, creativity and interpretation, enabling students to experiment with different styles, roles and historical eras.

Participating in theater helps our students build confidence, learn how to work as a team and apply these skills in the classroom. Yet with limited funding for our programs, we must rely on community supporters, such as you, to make these programs the best they can be for all who wish to participate. Here are some simple facts:

  • The fall and spring productions are the primary fundraisers for Sunset’s theater programs. The money raised covers the costs for all props, equipment, scripts, show licenses and more.
  • More than 4,000 members of the community, students, parents, teachers and friends attend Sunset’s theater productions throughout the year, offering sponsors tremendous visibility.
  • Sunset has an award-winning theater program that is growing. Our Thespian troupe, Sunset 5604, has received increasing honors over the years.
  • While repair of the Sunset High School auditorium was included in the most recent bond measure, we still have lots of additional improvements needed for necessary facility upgrades.  Watch for announcements about how you can be part of "giving back" to Sunset.

Please email us at to find out more about current sponsorship opportunities.

This is just one of the many efforts and successes we look forward to sharing with the broader Sunset community. We hope we can count on your support as we look to expand our audiences and raise the needed funds for the benefit of all of our current and future students.
