Drama takes us into the depths of our imaginations. Movement, voice and song transform a set made of wood, paint and cloth into an alternate reality to tell stories, awaken our sensibilities, and stir our emotions.

The art of theatrical performance is a craft that has many rewards. Drama students learn in an environment that is accepting and forgiving. Actors are able to release their inhibitions and express their inner self. The drama group encourages and nurtures abilities. The results are greater poise, confidence, self-assurance and an enhanced ability to communicate effectively.
