The Drama Department classes and school productions examine the human condition as portrayed in plays and observed in life. They train the student to improve self expression through understanding the voice, body, emotions and intellect. Various forms of theatre are experienced including classical and contemporary plays as well as improvisation and interactive theatre. Kennedy Catholic now has a troop chartered in the International Thespian Society.
