Gaylord High School Drama Club
Posted By: Laura Hotelling (June 22, 2021)
GHS Drama Club seems like other high school theatre groups, but it's not. Their mission is to have the students create every aspect of the phenomenal shows they perform (two per year). This means that rather than parents building the sets, costumes, props, etc., these students do that plus design all technical aspects of their student-acted shows. They also have a live student orchestra for their musicals, something rare to high school theatre groups.
The mission of GHS Drama is to provide a place for EVERY student who wants to participate. Their motto is, "If you don't think you belong anywhere, you belong with us."
Like many other organizations this past year, the pandemic hit drama club hard. Despite this, they still performed two shows...virtually. However, without a live audience purchasing a ticket per person, their finances took a hit. This grant would support their continued success and be much appreciated.
