Welcome to Argonaut Drama!

Argonaut Drama Argonaut High Drama gives students knowledge and understanding of the ancient art of theatre through reading, analysis, discussion, rehearsal, stagecraft, and performance.

Beginning Drama focuses on the fundamentals of acting through improvisation, scene work, and the practicum of performance.

Advanced Drama builds on these skills, adding the components of classical acting and festival competition.

Stagecraft teaches students the technical aspects of theatrical production, allowing for hands-on practical work.

Yearly performance projects include talent showcases, a live holiday radio show, participation in regional theatre festivals, student-directed one-acts, children's theatre, and a yearly Shakespeare production.

Argonaut Drama has been regularly acknowledged for excellence in high school theatre, winning Gold (2016) and Silver (2020, 2013) for overall production at the Lenaea Theatre Festival, and Superior (2018, 2014) and Excellent (2016, 2015, 2013) at the Motherlode Drama Festival.

In keeping with the true spirit of the holiday, this year, all funds raised will go to Amador STARS, a local charity that is "proud to help meet local cancer needs AND assist in the search for a cure."

The performance of A Christmas Carol is only one part of the evening's family-friendly festivities, guaranteed to get everyone into the holiday spirit. Doors open at 6pm for hot cocoa, treats, a dessert auction, special holiday surprises, and caroling by the Argonaut choir. A Christmas Carol will begin at 7pm.
