The goal of the drama department is to cultivate the theatrical skills of student actors and technicians through a variety of performance opportunities. Each year, the ACHS drama department produces two full-length productions: a fall play and a spring musical. In years past, we have also staged other performances, such as one-act plays with IHSSA and senior-directed one-act showcases. Opportunities exist for students to engage in acting, student directing, stage management, and technical crews. Crews include costumes, makeup, lights, sound, set, props, publicity, choreography, and community engagement. We need strong people on and off stage to make our productions run well! ‚ÄčIf you are interested in participating on or off stager, please contact Ms. Stratton in room 1324 or via email.
