The SJA Drama Club has a long standing tradition of high quality musical productions that involve a large number of students interested in drama, music, and dance.
The group is open to students in fourth through eighth grade by audition. In October, a workshop is presented by the directors reviewing the audition music and script lines, and the auditions are held the following week. Roughly, 70-80 students in two casts will be chosen for jobs both onstage and behind the scenes. Rehearsals are held after school Fridays and Saturdays from December through April. The performances take place in late April or early May.
Some of the past shows have been Peter Pan, Mulan, Honk, The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, Wizard of Oz, and The Little Mermaid Jr. The 2023-2024 production will be High School Musical Jr.
