High School Drama Club
About High School Drama Club
The HS Drama Club is a school sponsored activity in which students volunteer to rehearse and perform plays for the community. Students who are involved in HS Drama are dedicated artists who want to show that empathy and compassion are important to our growth as a society, demonstrating that there is more to life than just what you see! These students prepare for weeks and weeks to show off their amazing talents to a wide array of audience members. From young ones to mature ones, everyone has an invitation to attend one of our performances. Traditionally in the fall semester, the HS Drama Club puts on a performance specifically for the younger members of the community in an interactive children’s show written by Scott City graduates. In the spring, we showcase a play that is for the older crowd, proving that theatre is for everyone.
How to Join
The HS Drama Club meets every Monday and Wednesday, from 3:30 PM until 5:00 PM. Auditions are held in the fall 3 weeks after the beginning of the school year for the children’s show, as well as 1 week prior to the end of the 1st semester for the competitive pieces. You don’t have to be an actor to join! For every actor on the stage, there are at least 3 technicians to help with everything in the show from costumes to set pieces. Every hand is a helping hand when it comes to a production. If you have any questions, email Mrs. Wilcoxson.
