Theatre stretches the imagination and calls us to create, grow and discover! The stage is a place where students forge important friendships, find their voice, make connections among themselves, others, and the world, Most importantly, theatre is a way to have fun while using the talents and gifts the Lord has given us. The Sacred Heart Drama Club will offer students the chance to act, sing, dance and make music as well as work as technicians and artists in other facets of production.
Each year, Sacred Heart Drama Club Members will have the unique opportunity to take on leadership roles where they will lead and assist with different events, meetings and our main musical production. Students who are selected for leadership roles take on the responsibility of being a leader of the arts for students, staff and Drama Club members of Sacred Heart High School. Jr High and High School students are welcome to join!
St. Genesius, pray for us
