If you are interested in being “on stage” or “behind the scenes,” come join the fun. The Batesville High School Drama Club is open to all high school students and there are opportunities for all students to get involved,

The Drama Club produces at least two productions a year.  A fall play is produced in November (usually the weekend prior to Thanksgiving), and a spring musical falls in April.  Opportunities exist for students of all grade levels and both males and females.  No experience is necessary.  With any theater production, there are “leads” and townspeople/chorus members.  Auditions for the fall show typically take place in September, and musical auditions occur in early February.

An initial “get-together” is held near the start of the school year.  Come check out this organization.  We’ll play “theater” games and have a great time!  You can join us on stage or sit in the audience and watch.

We are always in need of students to be a part of the set/design team and tech crew.

Mrs. Lisa Barnett has been the sponsor of this club since 1988.
