Cowley Drama Club

The drama program offers a basic introduction to theatre, plus practical, hands-on experience in acting, stage management, set design and construction, lighting, and sound technology. Cowley proudly houses the beautiful 800-seat, state-of-the-art Robert A. Brown Theater.

An important part of the theatre program is the Act One drama club. The club began in 1988 and offers the campus many fun activities. Act One members are involved with two major productions, a traditional play and a musical each year.
