Here’s a to-do list for students to jump into drama
- Connect on social media with the links above

- Participate in Trajectories
- Join Drama Club
- Make friends (even with upper classmen) and don’t be afraid to ask questions
Audition dates listed may change, but detailed information about each production will be posted on the drama door and on our website. You will also find information there about tech crews for each show (construction, lights, sound, run crew, and costuming).

Trajectories at the beginning of the year and Broadway Extravaganza at the end of the year are both no-cut shows, meaning we will find a place for everyone who auditions. Our auditioned shows vary in size depending on the plays, but we typically have 60-70 parts open over the course of the year. We also love techies! We find places for anyone who wants to work on tech crews. Without you to build sets and run spot lights, we can’t make the magic!
More info on our shows can be found here.
As the year goes on
- Don’t disappear! Continue to be active and keep in touch, even if you don’t get into a show or you find you don’t have a lot of time.
- attend Drama Club meetings (and be sure to record your attendance)
- participate in productions in some way, even if you only have time to be an usher
- Attend all the shows and bring family and friends with you.
- Keep track of what you do. You can join the International Thespian Society and/or you can earn activity letters (the fuzzy EP you can put on a sweater or jacket). You will need to keep track of your hours!
- If you have questions at any time, you can contact the Drama Club Executive Council, Mrs. Nebeker, or Jay Asfeld.
