What is drama club?
Drama club is an extracurricular activity designed to engage students in
all aspects of the theatre. We have a fall musical, spring play, and a new
addition called Monologue Madness! We will also tap into the technical
side of drama with backstage crew, lights, props, costumes and more…

What will this year look like?
We have an exciting year planned! This year we will have:
Two Productions
● Fall Musical – Little Shop of Horrors-Auditions are:Monday, August 29th and Tuesday, August 30th after school until 4:15pm

collage of pictures on a canvas. Afterwards, they will pick a picture
from the collage to analyze and create a scene.
