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
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: Beauty and the Beast
2011: Register Here
2012: The Importance of Being Earnest
2014: Arsenic and Old Lace
2015: Murder for Dummies
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.
*For the Fall: early September
*For the Spring: end of January
We hope that at least one 1-Act play will be produced, to be prepared for competition at an upcoming forensics tournament.
