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.
