The eighth-grade play is a long-standing St. John’s tradition. In this team-building project, students select and produce a play that represents the character and legacy of their unique class. They are involved in costuming, props, set design, and performing.
Students can also participate in Drama Club as an extra-curricular activity that provides students an outlet for artistic expression and performance opportunities. Drama Club is available to students in grades 1-8 who have an interest in musical theater. Each year, a junior musical is selected to be performed in the spring. The members of Drama Club meet twice weekly after school beginning in January. Members are introduced to the musical production process of auditions, rehearsals, and performances. Many of the St. John’s Success Traits are emphasized in Drama Club. Members also develop their social skills, gain confidence, and cooperate as a team. Parents are encouraged to participate in building the set and working on costumes.
