AHS DRAMA DIRECTOR
We will hold auditions for the musical “Tarzan® Burroughs and Disney” which will be presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI) on Wednesday, May 30 from 3-5 PM and/or 6-7:30 PM in the Performing Arts Center. Students in current grades 8-11 may audition and more information will be available soon.
AHS Drama’s goal is to challenge young thespians in all fields of the performing arts. Be it flying actors in shows such as “Peter Pan” and “Mary Poppins,” renting giant dragon puppets to learn to manipulate for “Shrek The Musical,” or performing shows where cast are challenged to line up their movements to hundreds of sound effects in “The Cat and the Hat,” AHS Drama participants can always count on thinking outside of the box.
Students get a truly rounded experience with AHS Drama. They are expected to work in all areas of a performance from singing, acting, and dancing to scene design, prop building, and painting, as well as makeup design and application, light hanging and focusing, and even assisting with choreography.
Since the Performing Art Center’s opening production of “The Sound of Music” in 2003, AHS Drama has presented over 15 musicals and 14 plays impacting hundreds of budding thespians.
