Drama Club is an extracurricular creative environment that grants learners insight into the dramatic arts. Learners will practice all aspects of theatre—from acting skills and terminology to set design and costuming—to gain a more comprehensive appreciation and understanding of the art. Members will have ample opportunity to get comfortable on the stage, become familiar with standard acting/technical methods and terminology, and perform for their community and peers. It serves as an addendum for high schoolers in theatre class or a preparatory activity for middle schoolers on their way up. It is open to all learners who are interested in drama or want to rehearse their speaking or social comfort skills!
