Membership in the Dramatics Club can be obtained by appearing in anyone of the productions throughout the year.
This year the club presented in the fall, the play, "Death Takes A Holiday", and in January, the musical "My Fair Lady", as well as the Sen-ior. play and four one-act plays in the spring.
