We are the Rancho Cucamonga High School Drama Department, Thespian Troupe 5423. We are also known as the Players of the Vine. Our Drama Director is Mr. Loudermilk.
Our mission is to create a welcoming and safe environment for students to explore the magic of the theatre through acting, writing, directing, and technical skills such as lighting, sound, set design, costuming, hair & make-up, and stage managing. We hope to create change-makers in the theatrical arts; visionaries who aspire to not only perform but to lead and innovate.
We produce at least two productions each school year, one in the fall and one in the spring. We are hoping to also attend some theatre competitions as well as some field trips to expand our knowledge and experience in the theatre arts.
If you are interested in joining the department there are multiple ways to reach out; stop by J104 and speak with Mr. Loudermilk, reach out via our Twitter, Instagram, or email.
We hope to see you in the drama club or at an audition soon!
