Our Middle School Drama Program is a club activity that runs throughout the school year with a one week concentrated mini-semester for students in eighth grade. At this level, individual training and referral is also available for students with advanced acting proficiency and interest.
Our 8th Grade Musical is the pinnacle acting experience for all Ursuline Middle School students. This all-inclusive 8th grade event is developed, designed, and performed by our students with the assistance of our Middle School faculty and drama teachers. Designed as a one week mini-semester each January, this unique theatre experience exposes you to all elements of theatre production including set and costume design, makeup, sound and lighting operations, dancing and choreography, singing, instrumental accompaniment, and, most importantly, acting. The 8th Grade Musical is an annual tradition, which has featured award-winning Broadway musicals such as “Annie,” “Godspell,” “Honk,” “Oz,” and many more.
Participation in the annual musical and drama club gives you the opportunity to explore your interest in theatre and the performing arts, while increasing your self-confidence in public speaking and presentation.
