Drama

The OLA Drama Club is back for the 2021-2022 School year!

The OLA Drama Club is an extra-curricular activity for students in Grades 5-8 which meets twice a week after school in the church hall. Each year, the drama club performs a winter and spring play. Participating students learn about acting, play production, and stage work all leading up to a weekend of live performances! Past productions include Ebenezer’s Christmas Carol, Zombie Night, Villain School, The Lady Pirates of Captain Bree and the Snow White Variety Show.

2021-2022 Information: We rehearse Tuesdays and Thursdays immediately after school, and the performances are tentatively scheduled for the weekend of December 4 (Fall performance) and May 21 (Spring performance).

Spring Audition Dates: 3/8; 3/9; 3/10.

Everyone who auditions will get a part. This year, Mr. Bachner, will be joined by Laura Cardarelli, the new 4A teacher.

We haven't done a live play since December 2019, so there really is more opportunity for newcomers than in any year since we started. I hope you encourage your kids to give it a try if they think they would like it.

The OLA Drama Club is an excellent opportunity for students to build confidence in their performing and communications skills, work together in groups, and improve their self-confidence and social skills. Students of all skill levels and theater experience are welcome.
