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.
This Spring - Blithe Spirit by Noel Coward
This Spring the Seton Catholic Drama Department will be performing Blithe Spirit, a comedy by Noel Coward the week of April 20th. This hilarious comedy is about the socialite, novelist Charles Condomine, who invites the eccentric medium and clairvoyant, Madame Arcati, to his house to conduct a séance, hoping to gather material for his next book. The scheme backfires when he is haunted by the ghost of his annoying and temperamental first wife, Elvira, after the séance. Elvira makes continual attempts to disrupt Charles's marriage to his second wife, Ruth, who cannot see or hear the ghost.
Fall Play - The Birds
This fall's play was The Birds! Performances were Nov. 10 - 12, 2017 at Seton Catholic's new Performing Arts Center. This play really showcased the talents of Seton Catholic's students. "The music and dancing were fabulous!"

"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."
