Attending drama club can provide a child with many skills that will be of great use throughout life.

St. Joseph’s drama club is an exciting after school club where students not only learn many theatrical techniques but most importantly develop self-confidence. 

 

Throughout the school year the club meets once a week after school for an hour.  During the first part of the year, drama club addresses different dramatic situations through the use of improvisation and nurtures the skills of spontaneity and the ability to “think on your feet.” These are skills we as adults certainly need in our professional life (just think about job interviewing.) 

 

 Right before the Christmas holiday, a script is picked together as a group and parts are assigned so that the future actors can begin learning lines over the holiday.  Students learn the importance of working as a group, of belonging to a group where you have to count on each other to make the play come alive for the performance at the end of the school year. 

 

Drama club is a great way to be part of an awesome theatrical performance while letting your talents shine.
