A culture of theatre
Drama is a vital part of our arts curriculum at Assumption-St. Bridget School, and offers a comprehensive curriculum to all students from Pre-Kindergarten through eighth grade.
The ASB Drama program:
- Enables students to discover their creative abilities.
- Inspires students to strive for excellence.
- Exposes students to a variety of artistic mediums that challenge them to discover new ideas and perspectives.
- Enhances other areas of learning.
- Enriches creativity and artistic collaboration.
Our goal is to give students a positive drama experience while building self confidence and craftsmanship for life-long learning.

Assumption-St.Bridget School offers Middle School students the opportunity to participate in two fully staged productions each school year. Our Fall 2018 production this year is Martha B. King’s charming adaptation of Dickens’ A Christmas Carol. A Christmas Carol will be performed at North Seattle Community College’s Stage I Theatre on November 15th through November 18th, 2018.
Our upcoming Spring Musical is Jerry Herman’s beloved classic, Hello, Dolly! This blockbuster Broadway hit bursts with humor, romance, high-energy dancing, and some of the greatest songs in musical theater history. The romantic and comic exploits of Dolly Gallagher-Levi, turn-of-the-century matchmaker and “woman who arranges things,” are certain to thrill and entertain our ASB community!
The show’s memorable songs include “Put On Your Sunday Clothes,” “Ribbons Down My Back,” “Before the Parade Passes By,” “Hello, Dolly!,” “Elegance,” and “It Only Takes a Moment.” Auditions for Hello, Dolly! will take place when we return from Christmas break.rock island 2
Although Drama is traveling to the classroom this year as we begin construction for our new ASB library space, we are excited about all this year has to offer! Below, you can see photos of our Drama Room, housed in the Performing Arts Center at ASB. We will return to this facility, which offers students learning stations for creative play, space for rehearsal and small performances, and new and expanded instructional space for intermediate and middle school drama activities, after construction concludes next year.
