Now that school has started we at UHS drama are also underway. The first big event of the year for us is the Drama Kickoff Meeting Monday August 27th at 5:30 in the PAC. We encourage all students who are interested in participating Drama or speech in any capacity at all this year attend this meeting to get all of the information that they need to have a successful year in UHS Drama/Speech. For all returning students we would like you to bring someone who has never participated in Drama/Speech before so we can continue to keep growing and making our department even better!


We hope everyone is enjoying their summer so far. As we move into July we are going to start working on projects to help make 2018-2019 an even more efficient and successful year for UHS Drama. One of these projects is organizning and inventorying our costumes. Students should have received an email with a link to a google form to fill out if they are interested in helping out. Our plan is to accomplish this and some other small projects during the weeks of July 16th-28th. If you would like to help out you can fill out this google form- (parents are more than welcome to come help out as well!)


Or if you have any other questions about how to help out, you can always email Mr. Knapp at knapps@urbandaleschools.com
