Drama and Performing Arts

Drama in the Schools

Drama plays a special role in our school. Productions, often staged in community venues, regularly play to sold-out audiences who enthusiastically support student performances.

Elementary students receive a casual introduction to drama with classroom skits, movement, and music. Occasionally, more formal opportunities arise: a scripted radio show, performed on local community station KLOI, was a hit with students and listeners in the fall of 2009. Another radio theater broadcast of The Cat in the Hat was recorded and aired as part of Discovery Days in 2013.

Students begin developing poise, self-confidence and performance skills through drama on the secondary level. They love the innovation and excitement of the Musical Theatre class where they develop an original script, adapt a musical score and perform for the community. Advanced students participate in a popular after-school group that directs, stages and performs their own one-act plays.
