Welcome to St. John Neumann Academy's Drama Club
*This is specifically for currently enrolled SJNA students

WHAT: Drama Club is an after school program where students will learn theatre technique through high energy and interactive instruction, and put on an entire production!!

Drama Club is Mondays, beginning September 12th through Monday, December 12th. Production date will be announced very soon, but it will be the the week of 12/12.


The cost for this club is $195/student. This covers all materials and logistics of putting on this production!

WHO: This program is open to 2nd through 8th graders. 

There are only 20 spaces available!! Registration is first come, first serve.

PRODUCTION: The production will be "A Twist of a Carol". A children's production written by Joelle Shenk. Each actor will have costumes, work with props and sets, and be expected to practice their part (and MEMORIZE) at home.

INSTRUCTORS: Joelle Shenk has been teaching, directing, and producing children's and youth theatre in the NRV since 2009, and elsewhere long before that! She is excited to bring her love of theatre to St. John's!

Kayla Smith has also been teaching and acting in the NRV even before Joelle! They have worked together for over 10 years, and are excited to collaborate on yet another production!

I'm interested in registering. Now what?

YOU NEED TO KNOW: Commitment

  • Drama club begins Monday, September 12th from 3:15pm-5:00pm @ St. John Neumann's. It will run EVERY Monday, unless the school is closed. Please make sure the dates and times work for you prior to registering.

  • If your actor must miss a class, please email or call Joelle. joeloeproductions@gmail.com 540-230-5084

  • If more than two classes are missed, you may be asked to schedule a make up session to catch your actor up. This will be at an additional cost of $25/30min. session, and take place at an alternate studio.

  • Drama Club and theatre is a ton of fun, but it's also a lot of work. That's great! Your hard work will pay off in an epic production! Please know that you need to work on your part at home, and memorize your lines. During Drama Club you will learn ALL sorts of theatre technique, and what to do when you say your lines. Are you willing to commit to that? You are? GREAT!
