DRAMA DEPARTMENT

Quince Orchard Drama includes 4 levels of classes as well as an after-school Theatre Production program. Although it may be beneficial, you are not required to take a theatre class to audition or work on crew for a show. Work usually begins on the fall play the second week of school, and on the spring musical the first week of the calendar year. 

Drama Club and Stage Crew is an organization comprised of those interested in the theatrical arts. It functions as the producing body for at least 2 shows a year, with members not only performing in cast or pit orchestra, but also involved in such aspects as constructing and painting sets, making costumes, collecting and organizing props, hanging and running lights and sound, applying stage makeup and serving as the front house crew during performances, as well as many other areas of production. All student members involved in the productions are eligible for becoming members of the International Thespian Society, the Educational Theatre Association's student honorary organization. 

Actors must audition; workshops are held to show you how. 

Stage/Technical/Backstage Crew members, as well as Pit Orchestra members, do not audition but there is a level of expectation of commitment. All members of the productions generally meet every school day from about 2:45-5pm while preparing for shows and can run later the week the show opens (Tech Week). Certain areas of crew also work some weekends. The club also participates in other activities, which may include the Homecoming parade, going to festivals and participating in fundraising activities. Occasional Drama Club meetings generally occur at lunch. The call board next to the elevator on the first floor and the website carries Drama Club notices. Please help support the performing arts at QOHS by becoming a patron of QOHS Theatre. The club welcomes all new members to come and share their talents and knowledge.
