Drama is offered as an option in school at the Grade 7, 8/9 and all High School levels. In classes we explore the concepts surrounding self and performance and work to build knowledge and appreciation of Drama, performance and theatre as an art form. Our courses are broken down into units of Orientation, Movement, Speech, Acting and Improvisation, Technical Theatre and Theatre Studies. For High School and year-long Junior High classes there is also a field trip to Vertigo Theatre to experience a live theatre performance at the professional level.

Drama Club is an extra-curricular organization that begins in January and ends with two evening performances in May. All students from grades seven to twelve are invited to audition, regardless of whether they are enrolled in Drama classes or not. In January there will be announcements made for a meeting to gauge interest, explain the audition process and rehearsal schedule, commitment and expectations, as well as to introduce students to the club and to this year's directors, Mrs. Sawyer, Mrs. Becket and Mrs. Normandeau. Rehearsals will be held after school on Mondays and Wednesdays to begin, with additional days and times being added closer to the performance date.


Students who wish to participate in Drama Club, but do not wish to be on stage also have the opportunity to help out with lights, sound, props or other technical aspects of the production and are encouraged to attend the initial meeting in January as well.
