The Kaynor Drama program allows students to express their interests in the arts by improving their skills in acting, stage management, props, costumes, and lighting/sound. This program was founded in an attempt to improve Kaynor’s atmosphere by adding more activities for the students to take part in.
The founder, Mrs. Gannon, has spent many years building the foundation of the Drama department and has directed countless shows. She is currently in the process of retiring and we will miss her dearly. She is entrusting the drama department to Mrs. Anthony, a new member of the Drama department.
The Drama department offers opportunities to work in lighting, sound, set design, stage management, and of course, acting.
