Our Drama Department is led by the incomparable Whitney Johnson. Each year Whitney carefully chooses the fall musical to incorporate as many learners as possible. The spring teen drama is a smaller production aimed at giving high schoolers the chance to stretch their acting wings. Both productions require stage managers, also mentored by Whitney, and often there is a Props & Costumes class (also taught by…Whitney!) for learners preferring the behind-the-scenes activities of producing a show. As of spring 2015, Village Home has a chapter of the International Thespian Society. Whitney is also active in the Portland improv community and teaches improv at Village Home as well.
