Crews

The Drama Club consists of several crews that allow students the opportunity to pursue their particular interests in the various areas of theatre. All students whether they consider themselves actors or technical students, serve on crews. At the beginning of the year, students attend an informational meeting and sign up for the crew or crews of their choice. Each crew has a designated Thespian who acts as the crew lead, holds monthly meetings and provides workshops throughout the year.  The following are the various crews that make up the Drama Club:

 

Build Crew:  The Build Crew safely learns set-building techniques and they build the sets for the fall play and spring musical.
