Drama Club

Advisors: Mrs. Hetrick and Mr. Hamel

This club explores and teaches various aspects of theatre through the use of activities and games at monthly meetings as well as the production of two school shows: a fall play and a spring musical. Most recently, the club has presented shows like Mulan, JR, Robin Hood, Peter Pan, JR. Crazytown, and Singin' In The Rain, JR.
In addition, we take a yearly trip to Pittsburgh to see a professional show. Not only is it a memorable experience, but the opportunity to see a professional show live on stage gives students a look at the magical world of theatre and all that it's capable of accomplishing!
Requirements include creativity and dedication. Anyone is welcome to join the club and students of all grades are encouraged to audition for the shows! If you're looking for a fun club to get involved in and a place where you can make all kinds of new friends, this is the club for you.
Have questions or want to know how to join? You can email Mrs. Hetrick at
