Staff / Alumni Production 

Starring RWA Staff and Alumni under the direction of Mr. Doug Floen and stage managers Ms. Teresa Kaeser and Ms. Maya Radhakrishna.

An Appointment with Death is a play based on the novel by Agatha Christie. When a former prison wardress who dominates the lives of her three adult stepchildren is found dead at an archaeological dig near the Dead Sea, there are a great many suspects. (IMDb).

This production is in support of the RWA Foundation “Sharing the Stage with you” – Capital Campaign.   The Foundation have launched a $2 million capital campaign to enhance our auditorium, which absolutely needs improvements – the current facility is inadequate for the scale and quality of productions being mounted. The auditorium plays a central role in the complete academic life of the school and in the wide variety of extra-curricular learning opportunities at Royal West Academy.

Save the dates of April 12 & 13! Join the event on Facebook.


Dance Show 

On March 24, 2017 RWA is proud to host this year’s annual Dance Show.

For over 18 years, the RWA dance show raises funds for Le Bon Dieu Dans la Rue (commonly known as Dans la Rue), a bilingual Montreal based charitable organization offering resources and services for homeless youth and young adults aged 12–25. Dans La Rue offers unconditional support and assistance to youth and young adults who are isolated or in a difficult situations. Since 1998, almost $70,000 has been raised by RWA for this cause. Over 100 students will prepare for this exciting display of dance talent from a variety of cultures and styles.

Tickets will be sold for $10 in the foyer at lunch and right before the show. All proceeds go to the Dans La Rue foundation in effort to help homeless teenagers. There will be a 6:00 pm and 9:00 pm show.

Hope to see you all there! Two shows: 6:00PM-8:30PM & 9:00PM-11:30PM.  Join the event on Facebook!
