Junior high drama is a chance for students to excel in acting. Auditions are held in early January, and the performances are in the first week of May. Because we only practice two days a week, students involved in drama can be in other winter and spring activities. The schedule does get more intense as we progress toward the production. There are roles for people to play both onstage and behind the scenes. Everyone is encouraged to get involved; this year, about one-fourth of the junior high is involved.
