Theater Arts/Drama Program at Village Home

Each year, our Drama Department offers three different opportunities for our learners to shine on stage:

Fall Musical (staged at end of Fall Term) for ages 10-15.

Bloom Homegrown Talent Show (Spring Term)

Teen Play (staged in May) for ages 14+

Our fall musical productions strive to include as many learners on stage as possible. We believe in the power of theater for building self-confidence and community spirit.  The productions are a fantastic team effort that includes many volunteer parents helping behind the scenes with everything from set building to folding programs. The spring teen drama is a smaller production aimed at giving high school aged learners the chance to stretch their acting wings. Both productions involve learners in every aspect of the production on stage and behind the scenes – we believe in giving the students complete ownership of the process. Once opening night begins, the Director is in the audience, and the learners have taken over the process completely, supporting and helping each other, and taking care of all of the backstage management. Often there is also a Props & Costumes class where learners help with designing and creating the costumes, props and sets. Between the Beaverton and Salem campuses, the Village Home Drama Department serves upwards of 100 learners each year, each with their own individual creative contribution to making art come to life for our community.

Since 2015, Village Home hosts  a chapter of the International Thespian Society. Click for more information on our Drama Club: drama-club-thespians
