The Riddle Drama Club is a group of students from the junior high and the high school who produce one stage play a year.

Rehearsals usually begin in early March with performances set in late April. The club usually meetings in the evenings five times a week at the Elementary School for two hours. There is no experience needed and along with actors, we also need students who do lights, sound, and work backstage.

Our past performances include: SNAPPED!, The Trial of Santa Claus, and The Brothers Grimm Adventure. 


JUST US is a performing group made up of students from 7-12th grades.  The performances are geared to elementary students and incorporate music and drama in a way that keeps the students interested and engaged.  

The productions often have audience participation and range from fairy tales to the Wild West. After several weeks of rehearsals, the group hits the road for three days performing at elementary schools from Portland to Redding, California. They perform two to three shows a day and then have activities in the evening. There is nothing like a three-day road trip filled with longs days and sleeping on a gym floor by night!
