Drama

Moderator: Gary Rodgers (Elder HS)

Drama is open to everyone. This organization sponsors non-musical productions during the school year.  Meetings are held on varying days and times, depending on the current production and time of year.

Drama club presented You Can’t Take it With You, the Pulitzer Prize-winning play from 1937 on November 20 and 21 in the Seton Auditorium. Over 450 people attended the two performances despite the second night falling on the same date as Elder’s football playoff game with Colerain. This was the second production of the drama club that was formed in November of 2014 to give students at Seton and Elder another outlet for dramatic performance beside the spring musical. The show was directed by Elder drama teacher Gary Rogers and had 19 students in the cast and another dozen or so helping out behind the scenes on set, hair and make-up crews.

The show was a great success and the students are looking forward to producing next year’s fall drama which will be decided later in the school year.

- Helps with English vocabulary: English classes, PSAT, ACT, SAT
- Helps with English grammar
- Helps "missionaries" understand native languages
- Improves critical thinking skills -- not just memorizing words and forms but applying concept
- Helps in ALL classes: history, science, religion, math
- Expands interest in Greek/Roman mythology
- Makes us aware that our American culture today is based on Latin and Roman civilization 
- Develops a feeling of camaraderie because classes are small and less formal and more one-on-one

- Creates fun by learning about ancient customs and holidays

LATIN IS NOT DEAD AND DIFFICULT! IT IS MORE ALIVE THAN ANY OTHER LANGUAGE BECAUSE SO MANY WORDS ARE DERIVED FROM LATIN.
