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.

  • The WMS Drama Club is open to ALL students.
