Welcome to Pope Theater, the award-winning high school drama club of Pope High School, located in Marietta, Georgia!
The Drama Club is one of the largest clubs at Pope! Our students work with both guest and student directors to produce a full season of high quality plays and events. Past productions have included The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, Moon Over Buffalo, Legally Blonde The Musical, The Sound of Music, The Importance of Being Earnest, Much Ado About Nothing and Romeo and Juliet: Six Very Busy Days, to name a few. Although we are primarily student (and parent) run, we are very proud of the number of awards we’ve received.
We also produce the annual Haunted Theater event (a “theatrical” haunted house experience) and, last year, we debuted our first-ever Variety Show.
The Drama Club holds weekly theater workshops and is home to Troupe #4448 of the International Thespian Society which promotes theater, participates in competitions, and raises money for charities such as Trick or Treat So Kids Can Eat. The Troupe has also attended the Georgia Thespian Conference held in Columbus, GA for the past five years.
In 2010, the Pope Theater Booster Club was established as an official 501(c)3 organization and serves as the financial steward of the Pope HS Drama Club. The organization is also overseen by a board of directors and a Pope High School faculty advisor.
