The MPE Drama Club

Mountain Park Elementary School Drama Club was founded in 2006 and is a volunteer-run organization that enables students in grades 2-5 the opportunity to participate in a musical production performed at the Roswell Cultural Arts Center.  Students may choose to participate in a performing role or assist in the production as a member of stage crew.  Auditions are held early in the school year and practices are held after school.  Students learn the basics of theater production, stage direction, set design and vocal performance.


Past productions have included:  

  • The Music Man
  • Alice in Wonderland
  • Jungle Book
  • The Little Mermaid
  • Seussical
  • The Lion King
  • Peter Pan
  • Beauty and the Beast
  • Mary Poppins
  • Wizard of Oz
  • Aladdin
  • Annie
  • Willy Wonka


The MPE PTA is proud to support the performing arts in education because research supports the benefits of including such programming in the school setting.  Students develop confidence, self-esteem, trust, creativity, and collaborative skills, and participating in the arts leads to improved academic performance.  Kids learn teamwork, as well as trust in their peers to overcome anxiety, express new emotions and to support each other while having fun!  In addition, students are exposed to performing and working in a professional theater, with professional theater staff, all the while learning while doing!

Congratulations to everyone involved in the 2023 performance of Annie JR!

Congratulations to everyone involved in the 2024 performance of Willy Wonka!
