Drama Club


WELCOME to the 2016-2017 Drama Club!!

Mr. Sprain and Mr. Wolcott are the directors of drama and we are really looking forward to a great year!

We will be putting on one BIG show in the spring, and several little opportunities to perform throughout the year.

We will also be traveling to see different productions this year, learning how to audition for a show, and auditioning for local community theatre shows.

Drama Club Members are not required to attend every single meeting to be considered a part of Drama, all students can participate in other sports and clubs, but it is encouraged to attend as many as you can. Also, students must make a total time commitment if they are cast in a role for a show.

Meeting Dates and additional information will be emailed to students and parents.


Your Drama Club Directors:

Mr. Sprain – Artistic Director

Mr. Wolcott – Technical Director




Dear Lincoln/SOTAII/Coulee Montessori Students and Families,

All students are invited to be part of Drama Club.  Our club focuses on attending local theatre productions and learning about theatre production basics.   To be a part of the club, students only need to attend at least one meeting or field trip.

Our first Drama Club meeting is on Wednesday September 7th from 2:45-4:00 in the auditorium.  We will overview the year by outlining our meeting and field trip schedule and play some theatre games.

Our first Field Trip will be on Thursday September 8th from 6:45-9:45pm to see the LaCrosse Community Theater production of Sister Act located downtown at the Weber Center for performing arts.

The most amazing part of this trip is the fact that our new Choir Teacher and Drama Music Director – Ms. Fries – is in this show!!!!

Cost = $5.00 per person  (attached field trip Permission Slip required)
Checks payable to: Lincoln/SOTA II/CM Middle School

Students will board the bus at 6:45pm at the Lincoln Middle School Ferry St. doors.  The bus will return to the same doors following the production at approximately 9:45pm.  Please note that this is live theatre and shows may run shorter or longer, therefore we ask for your patience ahead of time in the event of a longer production.

Attached is the field trip Permission Slip and a list of dates of our planned meetings and field trips.

Mr. Sprain, Mr. Wolcott, and Ms. Fries




The Lincoln/SOTAII/CMAP Drama Club invites you to an after school field trip to see XANADU at the Weber Center. Xanadu is the story of Kira, a magical and beautiful Greek muse who descends from the heavens of Mt. Olympus to Venice Beach in 1980 on a quest to inspire a struggling artist to achieve the greatest artistic creation of all time–the first ROLLER DISCO! But when Kira falls in love with the mortal, her jealous sisters take advantage of the situation and chaos abounds!

senior year survivor

You are invited to go along with the Drama Club and Cast and Crew of Shrek Jr. to the Heider Center in West Salem to see “Senior Year Survivor”:

Reality TV has discovered one of the most daunting, desolate, and demanding terrains on planet Earth: America’s public schools. Six students from Desert Wasteland High School, sporting various backgrounds and personalities, have been selected for “Senior Year Survivor.” Who will be left standing after the slew of competitions and challenges? From homecoming, SAT’s, college applications and class rings, to announcements, prom and yearbook, these senior students are braving the whole gauntlet leading up to graduation! The audience gets to participate as judges, and alternate endings are included. The contestants who get voted off the show have to go to study hall. The battles and backbiting are as vicious as they are hilarious! You can be sure that, regardless of who’s the winner, you will never look at reality TV or high school in quite the same way again! About 50 minutes.
