NHS Drama Club
The Newport High School Drama Club is recognized by the Educational Theatre Association as a National Thespian Troupe. Through EDTA, Troupe 8846 competes at various theatre festivals on the state and national level. Members have multiple opportunities throughout the year to attend workshops in both Spokane and Ellensburg in order to hone theatre skills in all walks of the industry, including but not limited to acting, musical theatre, costuming, makeup, stand-up comedy, sound design, lighting design, set construction, and dance. Students who accrue enough theatre volunteer hours are eligible to become recognized as members of the National Thespian Society, and may even receive honor cords at graduation as recognition of their achievements. Along with competition and workshopping, troupe members participate in both the fall and spring theatre productions and orchestrate yearly fundraisers. In the off-season, after school workshops are available as well as bi-monthly pizza-fueled musical viewings. Don’t miss out on this amazing opportunity to pursue your passions onstage, travel, compete, and meet new theatre folk.
