Cleary Drama Club

The Drama Club is devoted to the study and performance of live theatre, including the business and marketing aspects. Our goal is to see, as a group, a minimum of 4 professional and amateur theatrical productions a year and meet with the cast, crew and production teams to see just HOW they managed to pull it off! In addition, the Drama Club will produce its own small, yearly production at the end of Spring semester. This production will be decided upon by the club members and staff/faculty sponsors and performed at The Historic Howell Theater for a single weekend.
