Students gain great experience for life and leisure in the St. Andrew’s Drama class. The class is half a year long and culminates in the Spring Drama Production. Facing the fear of getting up and acting in front of an audience as well as looking the fool during practices helps our students to face fears, particularly in the realm of public speaking. Drama experience also opens up our students’ eyes to storytelling, narrative, dialogue and the arts in general.
Students are often involved not just in acting, but in leading the charge in costuming, set design, and even adapting short stories for the stage.
