dramadons_logoWelcome to the website for the Acalanes High School Drama Department. We are the "DramaDons"!

We are an active department that strives to teach students about the power and benefits of the dramatic arts by actively participating in all aspects of the production of a variety of different styles of theater. We put on two major productions each year and several smaller productions that give students the opportunity to share their craft with the broader community.

Check out the pictures of our latest production, "A Company of Wayward Saints" here.

Acalanes DramaDons presents Almost, Maine

maine_thumbAcalanes DramaDons presents Almost, Maine, directed by Ed Meehan. The entertaining romantic comedy runs November 6, 7, 13, 14 and 15 at 7.00pm in the Acalanes Performing Arts Center Little Theatre.


Almost, Maine is an off Broadway play by John Cariani, featuring a remote, mythical town called Almost, Maine. Each of nine vignettes take place at nine o’clock on the same Friday night, in the middle of winter, with Almost's residents falling in and out of love in unexpected and often hilarious ways. Knees are bruised. Hearts are broken. But the bruises heal, and the hearts mend — almost — in this delightful midwinter night's dream. Please join the DramaDons for a charming, witty and humorous evening. 


Advance ticket sales available  on campus during lunch, coming soon to the AHS Web Store. Limited tickets are available at the door. All proceeds benefit Acalanes Performing Arts Boosters - Drama. $10 Adults $7 Student & Seniors. There is an additional $.35 handling charge for online ticket sales.

 
 

Third Annual Drama Trip to Ashland, Oregon

oregon_shakespeare_festThe Acalanes Drama Dept is pleased to announce that we are returning to Ashland, Oregon over Memorial weekend (May 22 - 25, 2015) to see several plays, participate in actor-led discussions, and go on a backstage tour at the world famous Oregon Shakespeare Festival (OSF). This is an incredible opportunity to be immersed in the culture of theater and participate in an exceptional educational experience. The OSF consistently attracts writers, directors and actors of the highest caliber, and garners awards for innovation and creativity in its productions. In addition, we will have our own personal "insider" guide, as Mr. Meehan worked on his Masters in Theater Education at Southern Oregon University in Ashland.
