One Act competed at ECNC on November 14th, placing eighth out of eleven teams, with the comedy, “It’s Not You, It’s Me” by Don Zolidis. Hannah Swanda, Simon Rother, and Boston Bailey received Outstanding Actor awards. Our public performance had a larger turnout than last year and spare change was collected to get the Drama department closer to new curtains in the elementary auditorium. Thank you to all who turned out to support us!

2016-17 School Year

The Johnson County Central High School presents "You're Driving Me Crazy" by Todd Walligner. It consists of four short plays about eager potential drivers facing the challenge of meeting the expectations of the driving examiner. One driver brings along her entire family to cheer her on and another driver must take the road test with his ex-girlfriend. I’m truly excited to see our student actors shine in this play! Please come and cheer on the JCC drama team at the competitions! We would love to see you there!
