Drama Club

Atchison County Drama Club, ACCHS’s drama club is open to all high school students who are interested in theater...both actors and technical assistants. 

Actors do just that---they act! But it takes a talented team of technicians working with the actors to create the magic of live theater. 

Technical work includes backstage assistants, lights, sound, props, costumes, publicity and set construction. Actors can also help with any of these elements.

Two full-length plays are produced annually:

           November  – school musical
                  
2007:  Back to the 80’s
                  
2008: Guys and Dolls
                  2009: Bye Bye Birdie
                  2010: The Wizard of Oz
                  2011: Damn Yankees
                  2012: Annie

                  2013: Little Shop of Horrors

                  2014: Rodgers and Hammerstein's Cinderella

                  



       April – straight (nonmusical) play
          2008: Just Another High School Play
          2009: The Curse of the Bard
          2010

Auditions open to all high school students maintaining academic eligibility. Some shows, such as The Wizard of Oz or Annie, will include elementary and junior high actors. Information will be given to interested students through their music classes.

We hope that at least one 1-Act play will be produced, to be prepared for competition at an upcoming forensics tournament.
