Advanced Acting Advanced Acting is an audition-only class in which students work independently with one another to develop their advanced acting skills. The class is production-oriented and designed for students seriously considering a professional career in theatre. Coursework demands a great deal of self-discipline as well as a commitment to work outside of school hours.
Drama Club members work on the many theatrical productions mounted at Overland each year. Students may participate in the realms of publicity, staging, lighting, sound, stage management, directing, playwriting, acting, set design, program, set construction, props, makeup, costumes, and pit orchestra. The main activity of the club is the production of plays, other comedic presentations, and technical support/production for other events taking place in the OHS Auditorium. There is a yearly retreat for all Drama Club members and Thespians.
