Drama/One-Act Production is an organization with the intent of nurturing the appreciation of theater arts by encouraging its participants to take on roles of actors, designers, stagehands, and audience members of one-act plays.
This organization is a benefit to its participants in developing academic, communication and social skills, also teaching how to use constructive criticism while promoting good sportsmanship.
