Get Involved

There are many ways for middle and high school students to get involved at Melrose Drama, from acting onstage to helping with stage crew and technical aspects. We’re always looking for help to put our shows together.

We are also always looking for parent support and help. Whether it’s building and painting sets, assembling costumes, putting our program together, volunteering for front of house during shows, parent help is very much appreciated, and needed!

Keep Up to Date

Current cast members and crew, check the MVMMS Callboard and the MHS Callboard for up to date information about classes, rehearsal times, rehearsal calls & notes, and schedule changes. 

Students, make sure to join the relevant Google Classroom! 

Parents, make sure to follow both Melrose Drama and Friends of Melrose Drama on Facebook and Instagram for regular updates and announcements!
