The Drama club focuses on developing students’ singing/acting/movement skills in a variety of musical theater performing styles and is designed to enhance artistic and creative talents. Students will learn to use their own personal voice type to sing different kinds of songs, while analyzing lyrics and character in order to better communicate a story through vocal and physical expression. They will learn solo or ensemble dance scenes as a part of the overall design of the show. Through the expression of dance and movement, students will learn how to convey the ideas and themes of the story through movement. Through the drama club productions, students will learn about musical theater history, from ancient Greek theater to present-day Broadway.
The Woodbury Middle School Drama club students will also have the opportunity to explore and learn about other aspects of the theater. Students will assist in set design, construction, and staging. They will learn about costuming, assist backstage with props and scene changes, and learn about sound and lighting technology and applications in the theater. The Drama Club is open to any WMS student regardless of the level of their ability or experience.
