Current Session Details

Hello DRAMA Families!

Below you will find the information needed for participation in DRAMA this Spring. Applications can be printed off the DRAMA website or filled out online. You can find links for both at the bottom of this page. Helper applications are also available on the website. All applications must be received by February 14th in order to be accepted into the Spring session. Please send your applications to Phil Weaver (95 Stobers Dam Rd. Stevens, PA 17578) along with your $50 session fee. If the session fee creates financial difficulty, please contact Phil (717-682-8597) as there are scholarships available. An alternate, older-member application is also available online.
  
Parents meetings
In order for a youth to participate in this session, at least one parent of all members and leaders must attend one of the parent meetings listed below or make special arrangements with a director. If a member is 18 or older, they may participate in the session independently from their parents by following our Older Member Policy on the website (under the Documents section). Please bring your calendars for scheduling purposes. There will also be a sign-up for training camp meals. Parents of new members do not need to attend these meetings, but are welcome to and may find them helpful. Spring parent meeting dates are:

First Sprouts practice will be a special “mini training camp” going from 3-7:30pm and including dinner together. You don’t have to commit to the whole session, if you just want to come to Mini Camp to check out Sprouts first, that’s okay. A $10 session fee will be due for anyone who commits to the whole session. If you have any questions, contact Emily Sensenig (717)826-7137, emilysensenig@yahoo.com. We’d like a head count for first practice dinner, so please use our online application to let us know your plans: http://tiny.cc/sproutform
