Drama ClubMrs. DaigleNovember-AprilThe MKMS Drama Club produces one full-length musical per school year. Everyone is invited to audition for an acting part or to sign up for one of our many back-stage crews; and we find a place for everyone--- there are no "cuts". We perform 7 shows- one for the 3rd and 4th graders from all 4 elemetary schools, two during assemblies for our MK classmates, and 4 ticketed performances for the public. Auditions take place in November and rehearsals run most days after school from late-November through early April.

(It is important to note that not every student will have to come every day November through February. It will depend on what part they play. Starting in March, all students are required to attend every rehearsal.)
