RGMS Drama Mission
It is the mission of the RGMS Drama Program to encourage and enhance arts education for all Robert Gray Middle School students. This mission is pursued through several goals:
- Create a supportive environment that fosters teamwork and personal responsibility of students.
- Provide students with an understanding of basic theatre, working to increase their confidence, self-expression skills, and public speaking abilities.
- Increase parent and student knowledge and awareness of arts education.
- Extend the opportunity for a high quality live theater experience to the greater community.
We produce three plays per year: fall, winter, spring. Students can participate on the crew or as actors. Sixth grade students produce a play of their own, which is written just for them and gives them the opportunity to practice acting. The main roles in the play are given to students in 7th and 8th grade, adding more rigorous expectations. Huge numbers of students enroll in this excellent program.
