Virtual Drama Club

Just because we can’t BE together, doesn’t mean we can’t PLAY together! Francesca Sobrer will lead a weekly drama club where students will explore the fundamentals of acting, play theater games and even get to perform original plays by local, young playwrights! This 10-week program will culminate in an online performance. Students of all experience levels are welcome!
