This school year, the Drama Department is as committed as ever to cultivating student artistry onstage with exceptional performances, and offstage with our incredible crews. This fall, we are thrilled to welcome aboard fall play director Taryn Darr! Ms. Darr is a graduate of the University of Washington (BA Drama), a singer/dancer/actor, and a proud union member of Actors Equity since 2001. She has taught acting and dance classes for over 20 years with many youth programs, studios and high schools around the Sound. Ms. Darr’s career onstage has taken her all over the US, but locally you may have seen her in starring roles at the Village Theatre or the 5th Avenue Theatre. She’s been honored to have choreographed three productions for Bishop Blanchet’s Drama Department and is so thrilled to get to spend more time working with these amazing students!

About Our Program

At Bishop Blanchet, our drama department's motto is "Truth and Courage." Whether students intend to pursue a career in theatre or are simply looking to try something new, we believe that making theatre cultivates creativity, sensitivity and enthusiasm in young people, and our program offers a supportive environment where students can make bold choices. 
The drama department offers a comprehensive three-part sequential acting program, three classes in theatre design, and a three-show season: a fall play, a student directed one-act festival, and a spring musical.
Students can participate in the performances both on stage acting and behind the scenes with one of our five crews: Stage Crew, Costume Crew, Hair and Makeup Crew, Marketing Crew, and Stage Management.
For more information about drama clubs like the Improv Team or the International Thespian Society, visit the Clubs page.
