The Notre Dame School Drama Program puts on a yearly performance involving 2nd – 8th Graders. Students are given the opportunity to gain experience acting, singing, dancing on stage and behind the scenes with costumes, music and lighting. 7th and 8th Graders can select the Drama Elective and 2nd – 6th Graders can be in the drama program after school. Practices and performances are directed by NDS Faculty and parent volunteers.
Yearly performances have included The Music Man, Fantastic Mr. Fox, The King & I and this year’s Beauty & the Beast Jr.
