Everything you've done is quite impressive! Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to tell me quite a path of what you're interested in or shows specific interest in a field. Have you done a lot of writing? If so, try competing in the Scholastic writing awards, or publish pieces on Huffpost or other large news websites! If you're interested in science, such as, from Science Olympiad, have you won any state or national awards with your team? Or, if you like STEM, you could do some research as part of a summer program or independently. That always shows initiative and interest to colleges. If you want to stick to competitions, try checking out an olympiad, like the USABO or USAPhO (biology and physics, respectively).

Since you've done theatre and writing, you could also try applying to TASP and various other humanities summer programs. Since colleges might not know the vigor of your independent activities, being accepted into such a program shows that you have merit.

If you do sports, try working towards being the captain of your sports team or being a D1 athlete. That is definitely hard, but it does show commitment and will, which is what ivy schools look for! Good luck :)

I am not sure what your passions or interests are so if you are planning to enter STEM, try to do a research internship or something. Cold emailing professors help a lot in that aspect, but you have to like get over the hurdle of not getting replies sometimes. If you are planning to do art, I guess start a online art business where you do commissions or whatever. Maybe a art club? I see that you are also into writing and plays so maybe if you plan to do something related to writing or journalism, I suppose joining your school newspaper team would be a option. You can even start a school magazine if you want (comedy writing can be a route to take with this if you want). I hope this helped but if it didn't then I hope someone else provides a better answer.
