Drama Club: Spring Semester
The Yorktown Drama Club is back, and is a little different 2nd semester!
Sponsor: Alani Kravitz
When Tuesday/Thursdays 4-6pm
Informational Meeting: Tuesday, February 9nd at 4pm on Zoom
Performance: Virtual Variety Show, late March
This Spring we will rehearse twice a week and produce a Virtual Showcase in March.. The show will be a combination of sketch theatre, scripted theatre, slam poetry, lip sync battles, songs, dance, juggle and more (!). We will begin as an ensemble, then split into various sections and then come together to record the show.
The Drama Club is open to everyone and there will be optional auditioning for selected material once we begin meeting. How will we do it? Find out by attending an information session on Tuesday, February 9th at 4pm on Zoom. We will be recording the show mid-late March so please join by early March to be in the show!
Where Do We Go From Here?
A look at what we have done so fare this school year and what is coming next!

What if someone sat down next to you on a park bench and started picking their nose? How would you sell a $2 plastic pencil sharpener on an infomercial? What if you attended a press conference where Barbie threatened to invade Canada? Thank you to student teacher and drama club coach: Alani Kravitz.

Self-proclaimed Orson Welles wanna-be genius Harlan Bean, is ready to make history with his science-fiction radio masterpiece “Battle of the Planets”. But when the Zoom broadcast is in the hands of an ambitious actress with her own vision for her character, several terrified last-minute replacements jumping in, and a disgruntled sound engineer out for revenge, the mayhem in the Zoom rooms makes an alien invasion look like a piece of cake.
Come see Zoom broadcasting go hilariously off the rails in this entertaining LIVE-STREAMED show by the
Advanced Theatre Arts IV class!
