Act One: 25 "Dramatic" Years

Posted: May 1, 2020.

2020 marks the Act One School of Drama's 25th anniversary of providing drama programs to Durham time flies!

To celebrate this milestone, and to hopefully bring back some enjoyable and nostalgic memories, we will be taking a journey through the years, via the school's Facebook page, by posting slideshows, videos and short films from all the student performances, camp sessions, special events and other student activities over the years. It is our hope this will provide many current and former students and their families with some fun "blasts from the past", that help lighten up the days over the coming weeks, expecially while we all deal with the COVID-10 pandemic.

Starting Thursday, April 30th, each day, the school will be posting one or more slices of the school’s history in chronological order from the distant past, working our way back, year by year, to the present.

To help anyone curious as to which years we will be presenting and roughly when this will happen, here is a rough posting schedule
