SEACT's award-winning Wiregrass Drama Club has a mission is to foster an environment that inspires young artists to dream, create, explore, think and connect, while encouraging self-expression and education.

We support young artists’ creative abilities and talents. Our goal is to promote a high sense of “self” in our members (self-esteem, self-respect, self-dignity, self-control, self-reliance and self-discipline). Wiregrass Drama Club is recognized as an inclusive and affordable organization that helps young artists to become creative, confident and compassionate adults.

Competition Theatre & Ensemble

 

Wiregrass Drama Club members may choose to participate in theatre competitions. These are events for ensemble teams (auditioned) and for individuals who compete in scene work, monologues, duologues, and musical theatre solos and duets. There are positions for both actors, and technical support members who are focused on stage management, costumes, lighting, spotlight, and sound.

In 2021, Wiregrass Drama Club's ensemble team competed with Seussical Jr. at the Alabama Youth Theatre Experience in Boaz, Ala., bringing home awards for Best in Show, Best Lighting, Best Actor (Memphis Mortimer), and a Judge's Choice Award (Chad Snell). All-Star cast awards went to Sarah Kanes in technical support on stage managing and sound, and to Savannah Bloom and Jonathan Phillips for acting.

In the 2021/2022 season, the competition team will attend multiple events, and perform Dear Edwina Jr. at the Cultural Arts Center, Mar. 24-26.
