Philosophy

The philosophy of the drama department is to enhance the student's appreciation and knowledge for the performing arts through participatory games, scene work, knowledge of theatre history, and public speaking skills.  The drama department also helps to enhance the Mercy community through our after-school theatre program and fall and spring arts festivals.  This time is when students of all grade levels come together to create and inspire each other, as well as inspire their audience and community, through participation in the performing arts.
