There's no better place to make friends and enjoy theatre in school than in the East Lake High School Drama Department. Every aspect of the program is intertwined with positivity and radiates professionalism and refinement that you wouldn't find in most schools. There's no way anyone can go through this program and not experience every aspect of theatre atleast once. There have even been people who have gone through this program starting off in one class and ending in all three (Musical Theatre, Theatre, Tech Theatre). The friendships you make in this place are so pure and good that it's hard to find a negative soul anywhere. Everyone strives to uplift one another, whether that mean before an audition or before a big test in their math class. If there was a singular word to put on the people of this department, it would be: Supportive. No matter what, you will always find a strong and caring support system amongst every class and that is something other schools lack. Not East Lake.
