Nipomo Drama is the theater department shared by Nipomo High School and Central Coast New Tech High School, putting on a total of six or more shows a year.

The drama teacher position has been switching from teacher to teacher for the past six years, but Creative Director Robyn Metchik returned to Nipomo High school with her team in Fall of 2018. Her team includes Suzy Miller, Kathrine Prado, Eric Guisinger, Mark Robertson and set designer Zach Wasil.

 Nipomo Drama is a fast paced theater program. The 2019-2020 season includes the shows: Mousetrap, Beauty and The Beast, and Happiest Show on Earth.

 Metchick cast all three shows within the first month of school.

The drama department has grown dramatically this year with majority of the class being mixed with underclassmen.

¨I like performing and Nipomo Drama gives me the platform to express myself and make me feel welcomed.̈ stated sophomore Alex Newton.

The Drama Wall Of Fame is a wall filled with portraits of past Nipomo Drama alumni who are awarded for their time spent with Nipomo Drama. ¨I think the Wall is really rewarding and motivating, I want to be able to come here 10 years from now and show my kids my portrait and support the new generation of Nipomo Drama students,” said Isabella Martinez
