Not everyone on this team will act.We will need many support people in the area of props, sets, costumes, etc.
(ages 13 & up) will learn the basic fundamentals of drama and produce
live performances at the end of the semester.
So, if you love Drama in any form, shape or fashion, join
us! We will have a great time producing some lifetime memories!
Some testimonials from some former students at a large High School...
Mrs. Allen, this has been the best semester of my life!I’ve really enjoyed acting in “Julie” and “Stella Divine.”Those memories will be some of the best of my teenage years.Even
though this semester has been tough in many ways, it has also been very rewarding.I
have had a chance to form friendships, act in several different roles, make lasting memories, and just have a great time.Your classes have meant so much to me these past two years.Thank you for coming to SHS.You’ve made it worthwhile
for myself and many others to look forward to going to school, or performing.It’s
been great.Your friend, Brandon Ford
Through being in Choir and Drama, I have met some
interesting people.I have learned so much from Mrs. Allen, not only about choir
and drama, but about life.I have learned that for anything to work in life,
you must remain faithful to people and to God.David Teel
Mrs. Allen, I just wanted to start off by saying
that you’re an awesome teacher.I have really enjoyed being in your class.You are the best teacher I have had and I thank you for making my 1st Drama
experience great!I hope your summer is full of joy and great things.I can’t wait to see what next year has in store for the Drama Team.You’re an awesome person.See you next year!!!Tara
Mrs. Allen, I have had a wonderful time in Drama
this year.You have taught me a lot.Though
it seemed as if I wasn’t listening, I was.My most favorite time was when
Pam, Jerrha, and I could make everyone laugh.Being in Drama made me really think
about thing more, and appreciate the thing that I do.Thank you for all that
you have done for me this semester.Love, Leann Hunter
This year has been great!Mrs. Allen has been a light for me!She is such an inspirational
person.Thank you to the people who were in my Drama Class!Thank you, Mrs. Allen, for allowing Drama to exist!Never
forget, Drama Rules!Samantha Sykes
Mrs. Allen, I love you and I love Drama!Thank you for helping me decide what I really want to be more than anything!Love, Krissy
This time spent in Drama will be forever embedded
in my heart!It has been the “sardines in my sandwich, the mayonnaise in
my potato salad, the little blue thing that smells nice in my toilet bowl!”(from
Stella Divine J) Tiffany Smith
Mrs. Allen, Though I was only in Drama for about
three or four weeks, I’ve had the best time of my life!When I first got
changed into your class, I really didn’t expect to do anything because it was so late in the year.Then, just like that, I was asked to be “Sam – Stella’s long, lost love in the play Stella
Devine.”My response was, “Sure, what could it hurt.”Two days before the play I was a bit nervous because I didn’t know my lines.So I got a bunch of people to help me memorize it.Then I was set.I know I was more energetic and more nerve-racking than
anyone else but I don’t think anybody cared.So, Mrs. Allen, what I’m
trying to say is that I had so much fun in Drama, making new friends, helping people out, and most of all…..being in
your class.Kenny Purvis
