ABOUT LINCOLN HIGH THEATRE. Lincoln High Theatre is one of the programs featured in the "Nebraska Loves It's Public Schools" program, sponsored by the Sherwood Foundation. They are telling the stories of how Nebraska's public schools are using innovative programs and practices to effect change.

While arts budgets are being slashed at schools around the country, Lincoln High School’s theatre program uses the dramatic arts to teach collaboration, a global world view, and responsibility that comes from the heart.

THE CHALLENGE:  How can a high school theatre program change the course of a student’s life? And how can a school use the performing arts to engage students from across the spectrum, from the football star to the skateboarder, the wealthy kid to the struggling refugee. Teacher Patsy Koch Johns proves that whether you’re on the stage or in the audience, theatre can change perspectives and attitudes, and be a force for positive change.   

THE CHAMPIONS:  Patsy Koch Johns of the Lincoln High School Theatre Department; Principal Dr. Mike Wortman; International Baccalaureate Programme (IB) Principal John Heineman; teachers Chris Maly and Molly Thomas; and teacher and technical theatre director Ben Koch.
