Legacy's drama department was officially started in 2010 with an elective class in the Upper School, followed by an Intermediate School elective the following year. “With our strong commitment to the arts, we always knew we would have a drama program, but it was important that we begin the program in a way that did not take away numbers of students from art, band, or choir causing those programs to suffer. We want all of our fine art programs to be strong and competitive.” shared Fine Arts Director Sandra Clark.
And the program has in fact grown. So popular in fact was the class in the Intermediate School, that the decision was made to include it as an elective for each student at the 7th Grade level, a philosophy similar in fact to what is offered to 5th grade students, who have the opportunity to experience art, band, and choir throughout the year. “At the Upper School,” Mrs. Kelley said, “we added an honors section that complements our regular level drama class.” Not only does this allow for more students to participate in drama, but it also allows those with particular giftings and interest to excel.
