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
