The Washington Academy drama program involves the production of two plays over the course of the school year. Students of all experience levels are invited to participate in any acting or non-acting roles in either production. The fall play is usually a full length production. During the winter, the school participates in the state sponsored one act play festival involving plays less than forty minutes long. It is submitted as a competition piece to be performed regionally and possibly statewide. Student decision making and input is encouraged in both productions.
