dramadons_logoWelcome to the website for the Acalanes High School Drama Department. We are the "DramaDons"!

We are an active department that strives to teach students about the power and benefits of the dramatic arts by actively participating in all aspects of the production of a variety of different styles of theater. We put on two major productions each year and several smaller productions that give students the opportunity to share their craft with the broader community.

Check out the pictures of our latest production, "A Company of Wayward Saints" here.

Acalanes DramaDons presents Macbeth

macbeth_posterThe Acalanes DramaDons proudly present Macbeth April 27, 28, 29 and 30 at 7pm in the Performing Arts Center little theater. Shakespeare’s Macbeth is a swift and relentless tragedy which uncovers the terrifying consequences of blind ambition. Set in medieval Scotland, a dark prophecy leads a warrior and his wife past the point of no return, in a world of ghosts, witches and battlefields. Shakespeare’s great story telling, compelling characters, catchy phrasing and illumination of the human experience all come to light in this production, directed by Ed Meehan, Acalanes’ drama teacher. Tickets are available in April during lunch at Acalanes High School and online from the web store.


Limited ticket sales available day of the show. Doors open at 6.30pm. Adults $12, Students and Seniors $7. Mark your calendar for a dramatic and suspenseful production performed by the talented Acalanes DramaDons, April 27,28, 29 and 30th at 7pm.


Third Annual Drama Trip to Ashland, Oregon

oregon_shakespeare_festThe Acalanes Drama Dept is pleased to announce that we are returning to Ashland, Oregon over Memorial weekend (May 22 - 25, 2015) to see several plays, participate in actor-led discussions, and go on a backstage tour at the world famous Oregon Shakespeare Festival (OSF). This is an incredible opportunity to be immersed in the culture of theater and participate in an exceptional educational experience. The OSF consistently attracts writers, directors and actors of the highest caliber, and garners awards for innovation and creativity in its productions. In addition, we will have our own personal "insider" guide, as Mr. Meehan worked on his Masters in Theater Education at Southern Oregon University in Ashland.
