Dynamic, dedicated students of the arts get to strut their stuff in R-MA's theatre program each year. In the Upper School program, actors, dancers, technicians, stagehands, directors, choreographers, musicians, artists and costume designers come together to produce a mainstage musical production each fall. ”We want to incorporate all types of students that come to us with all types of special talents,” states Kim Cramer, Drama Instructor here at R-MA. “We are not looking for experienced performers, just a love of the art and a willingness to learn!”
In recent years, the drama productions have become so popular that we have moved performances to the stage in Melton Gymnasium. The performances have been opened to the public as well as the R-MA community and has become a highlight of the Fall Family Weekend!
During the school year, drama lovers have lots of opportunities to shine as well. We have a yearly Christmas play, seasonal open mic nights, poetry slams, murder mystery dinners, and much more. If you are really interested in drama, consider taking the Drama 1 class! This class explores all aspects of drama including acting, directing, improvisation, and film-making.
Recent productions include: Cinderella, Godspell, Grease, Once on This Island, Murder Box, The Audition, The Good Doctor, Check Please!, R-MA’s One Act Festival, and Mulan.
Please contact Ms. Kim Cramer if you have any questions about our program. New students are always welcome as performers and technicians. The only requirement is a willingness to work hard and to have fun.
