Students at Eukarya in grades 4 and up have the enjoyment of Drama Class. Students train for our musicals and monologue presentations through theatre games, improv and theatre history. This year, students have put their efforts into our first all drama play- “The Secret Garden.”  The performance demonstrated the continued growth of our students in the performing arts.

In addition to acting, our drama students learn about costumes, lighting, props, set creation and scenery.
