Chicopee Comprehensive High School
The Drama Club has been established to provide an opportunity for students interested in theater to participate in all aspects of play production. Students interested in performance, direction, design, technical support, backstage crafts, publicity, etc., are encouraged to join.
The club usually holds two productions during the school year. Auditions are open to all students. Members are expected to participate in at least one production a year (in any capacity) to be considered an active member.
Open meetings start in September and are held once weekly on a day chosen by the membership (usually Wednesday). Once a play has been cast, rehearsals are held after school. Students are given a rehearsal schedule, which runs 6 to 10 weeks. Actors rehearse 2 to 5 days per week during this time depending upon the demands of the play and the role given.
The entire school year. (January meetings are at the discretion of club advisor.)
All students may join the club at any time during the year by coming to a meeting, auditioning for a play, or dropping by a rehearsal.
