The drama club at Arenac Eastern is noted for providing first class, quality theatrical entertainment to the community members in Arenac County.
Membership is open to anyone with an interest and/or desire to learn. Students master the skills of applying makeup, set building, set decorating, procuring costumes and props, all aspects of producing a show, and some even get a chance to try their hand at directing as well. Past productions have included variety shows, serious dramas, uproarious farces, and even a musical!
Assistance from the community and area businesses has proven to be consistent and generous. Industrial arts instructor Craig Hahn and his crew (our own A.E. students) have never found a set design too complicated for them to handle. Parental support has been an integral part of our success as well, as numerous rides, meals, and cookie donations have rounded out our successful productions.
