DRAMA CLUB

This club is the Middle School Theater Club.  Working with teachers and professional guest artists, members of the club develop the skills of acting and stage craft.  The group presents two main stage productions per year:  A musical production in January and a dramatic non-musical play in May.  Rehearsals are after school at 3:15.  Students are expected to be at all rehearsals once the schedule is set.  Mandatory tech/dress rehearsals run longer the last two weeks prior to performance dates.

FORENSICS SPEECH TEAM

Forensics (not to be confused with Forensic Science!) is the art of formal public speaking and presentation. Team members take part in a variety of oral communication competitions. Students’ research, develop, practice, and deliver their performances which include speeches, interpretations and dramatizations of literature. Although students perform as individuals or in small groups, involvement in forensics almost always means being part of a larger team that practices, travels, and competes together. Students also get many opportunities to interact with and learn from students from other schools. The award-winning PMHS team has enjoyed great success on the local, regional, state and national levels.
