Drama

Welcome to Seton Catholic Drama
 
The Drama program at Seton Catholic provides students with a variety of opportunities to get involved in performing arts.  The Drama Department classes and school productions examine the human condition as portrayed in plays and observed in life. They train the student to improve self-expression through understanding the voice, body, emotions, and intellect. Seton Catholic offers various forms of theatre including classical and contemporary productions.

"Over the past five years, I have worked to develop the Seton Drama Program, which currently boasts two major theatrical productions per year, an annual alumni dinner theater production, Shakespeare and performance workshops, and participation in the ESU National Shakespeare Competition.  I am deeply grateful to the many students, alumni, parents, administrators, faculty, and staff who have helped and supported this ongoing process."
