dramadons_logo Welcome 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 Twelfth Night


Acalanes DramaDons presents Twelfth Night, April 30, May 1-3 in the Little Theater.

Revelry, disguises, and (of course) pining lovers abound in what some call Shakespeare’s most perfect comedy. Twins Viola and Sebastian, separated in a shipwreck and presuming each other dead, wash ashore in the beautiful but mysterious land of Illyria. A tale of mistaken identity and mismatched love unfurls as lords and ladies, servants and masters wind a topsy-turvy path to happiness...

Showtime is 7:00;  doors open at 6:30.  General admission tickets are $10.35, $7.35 for students; tickets may be purchased on the web store, at the door or on campus during lunch.  All proceeds benefit the Acalanes Performing Arts Boosters - Drama Discipline. There is a $.35 handling charge figured into the ticket price.

Second Annual Drama Trip to Ashland, Oregon

oregon_shakespeare_fest The Acalanes Drama Dept is pleased to announce that we are returning to Ashland, Oregon over Memorial weekend 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.
