Lancers Drama is an extra-curricular club that brings students together in the spirit of arts and performance. Students not only get an opportunity to act on stage, but to meet new friends and peers. It also offers the chance to grow in several skills, such as public speaking, self-confidence, construction and organizational abilities as well as other talents.

Lancers’ Drama continues a long tradition of theatre at Malden Catholic and welcomes a new director in the 2013-2014 season, Br. Ron Santoro, C.F.X.
This year's performance schedule includes three shows: a fall production in early December, the State Drama Festival sponsored by the Mass. Educational Theatre Guild throughout the month of March, and a student-directed production in May.
Much like a three season athletic team, Lancers’ Drama meets every day after school to work on a series of theatrical projects spread throughout the school year (and in the future looking towards a summer program as well). Whenever a play is in rehearsal the cast and crew can always be found in the theatre, working on scenes, building and painting sets, designing light and sound for the show and doing all the things necessary to insure that “the show must go on!”
Each rehearsal period is viewed by the director and club members as a mini-workshop in play production, with the teaching/learning of acting techniques, character development, production values, design issues and front-of-house/elements contributing to the creation of a theatrical experience that will go beyond the students involved to the entire Malden Catholic community and the world beyond. Think of Lancers’ Drama as a “studio-for-theatre”--similar to the medieval guilds--where creative students can work and grow together to learn and perfect their craft and then to share their masterpiece with each other and the whole community.
Lancers’ Drama is a very busy world and invites all to be a part of our exciting program.
