The HHS Drama Department offers students the opportunity to participate in the communal art of theatre. HHS Drama produces a full season of theatre each school year which includes a full length play, a musical, and a one act play that competes at the SDHSAA State Festival.
Drama I, Drama II and Stagecraft classes are offered for academic credit. Students in Drama classes delve into acting, playwriting, criticism, history and improv. Stagecraft students study various aspects of technical theatre such as set, lighting, costume, and make-up design. They also build and paint the sets for HHS productions.
Students can audition for acting roles as well as sign up for technical positions. All students interested in being a part of our productions are encouraged to join the Drama Club. The HHS Drama club is a student led organization with elected positions of President, Vice-President, Secretary, Treasurer and Historian that organizes group activities and supports the Drama Department. Drama club also offers educational travel opportunities to theatrical cities like Minneapolis, New York, Los Angeles, and London.
