Meriden Public Schools Performing Arts

Washington Middle School Drama Club


The AWARD-WINNING Washington Middle School Drama Club is for students who enjoy theater. This could mean that you love to sing, dance, and act, OR it could mean that you want to work backstage with sets, props, costumes, lighting, and sound. If any of this interests you, then you're in the right place!


We put on one Broadway-style musical a year.

Rehearsals generally run from October-May,with four performances in May.

In June, we compete as a Drama Club Show Choir, and perform at the Music in the Parks competition.


Director/Advisor/Music Director: Mrs. Dorri Mendes

Assistant Director: Ms. Alyssa Hanlon

Stage Manager: Ms. Marta Kwiczor

Technical Advisor: Mr. Tom Gordon



The WMS Drama Club is open to ALL students.

We will have our first informational meeting in September in the WMS Auditorium. We will announce this year's production, and give you all of the information and paperwork you need to sign up.
