The Student Directed One Acts represent a weekend filled with short, snappy productions directed and often written (and starring) MAD Drama students. Every year brings an entirely new slate of fascinating productions.

How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying

April 30, May 1, 2 2020


This fun-loving musical concerns the young and ambitious J. Pierrepont Finch, who, with the help of the book How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, rises from lowly window washer to Chairman of the Board of the "World Wide Wicket Company." Set in the early 1960's, How to Succeed embraces the look and feel of the madcap world of corporate climbing in mid-century New York.

New York City Trip

Get excited!  The itinerary has been finalized for this year's Mad Drama trip to New York City!


The trip will be on May 23rd and space is limited.  Only the first 49 students who submit their completed permission slip and pay their deposit of $200 will be able to go on the trip.


Deadline is December 27th (but remember it is first come first serve so if you wait until December 27th you run the risk of there being no spaces available).

The total cost of the trip will be $359-$391 depending on how many people sign up (with a minimum of 36).  A message will be sent to all registered attendees with the final cost at a later date when we have a better idea of how many students are planning to go.
