Drama 2018-2019 Season
You have never seen funny on a stage until you see Scapin!
You have never seen funny on a stage until you see Scapin! This classic Italian Commedia Dell’Arte play by Molière has been reimagined for a modern audience for rolling in the isles laughter. The characters are played with oversized bodies, bombastic attitudes, and outrageous actions.
Staged like a wild melodrama, the audience is invited to get involved too. That means every show will be different depending on who comes. We need YOU! Do not miss it!!! Bring everyone you love to laugh with.

Welcome to Almost, Maine, a town that’s so far north, it’s almost not in the United States—it’s almost in Canada. And it almost doesn’t exist. Because its residents never got around to getting organized. So it’s just…Almost. At 9 PM, one cold, clear Friday night in the middle of winter, while the northern lights hover in the sky above, Almost’s residents find themselves falling in and out of love in the strangest ways. Knees are bruised. Hearts are broken. Love is lost, found, and confounded. And life for the people of Almost, Maine will never be the same. ALMOST, MAINE: It’s love. But not quite.

Drama I is the introductory course of the drama program. During the first semester of the class, students explore several aspects of theater arts including acting, directing and technical theater. The second semester will focus on a live performance that will involve both the acting and technical aspects of theater.
Theater / Advanced Drama is a one-year course with hands-on activities. Specialized instruction in method acting and technique is emphasized. Students who are accepted for enrollment will apply the basics learned in Drama I to advance their understanding in improvisation, speech, modern and classical scene studies, monologues, stage presence, dialects, and directing. Elements of play production will be reviewed and elaborated upon. Viewing and critiquing of professional theater is required. Additional work on school productions is also required as an extension of classroom learning.
