Barnstable High School Drama Club

Barnstable High School Drama Club, 744 West Main Street, Hyannis   508-771-6246
Stellar performances by students and community cast members. 

The Drama Club has come a long way from two performances of a spring show to a year-round schedule and upwards of an unprecedented 50 nights (and afternoons) of entertainment.
The club’s expertise and talent have long been in demand by other organizations, a tradition that began years ago and continues to this day. Sullivan and his students have donated their time and skills to raise money for such organizations as Big Brother and Sisters of Cape and the Islands, The March of Dimes and Housing Assistance. They have always been of great service to the Town of Barnstable as well, from helping to stage events such as First Night and Disney Days to creating the backdrops used as part of the Town’s winning presentation at the All-American Cities competition.
