About the NSES Drama Club Program
The North Stonington Elementary School Drama Club is an after school program open to 4th, 5th and 6th grade students. We perform Broadway style shows each year in the spring. Our mission is to provide an opportunity for students to increase their self-confidence through creative expression, self-discipline and teamwork while encouraging a lifelong appreciation of the arts and recognition of the educational power of the theatre. These attributes help contribute to success in the classroom both academically and often behaviorally as children discover talents and skills which can help boost classroom participation.
What's Up in 2022-2023?
In March, we had an amazingly successful performance of The Wizard of Oz. You would never have known we had not performed live in 3 years due to COVID.
This year we are performing Willy Wonka, Jr. in March 2023. Over 70 students auditioned! We are currently working together as a full ensemble learning stage direction, vocalization, acting with our bodies, and ways to engage an audience. Casting will be announced in November.
Look for us at the PTO Fall Fest where we will be participating in the Trunk or Treat – Willy Wonka style!
