Drama Program at Village Home

Our Drama Department is led by the incomparable Whitney Johnson. Each year, we have three opportunitunities for our learners to shine on stage:

Fall Musical (staged at end of Fall Term) for ages 10-14

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 as well. The spring teen drama is a smaller production aimed at giving high schoolers 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, Whitney 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.  Since 2015, Village Home hosts  a chapter of the International Thespian Society.

These are a few pics from our teen production in May 2019.
