Drama Club Series : Titles in Order

Book 4
The excitement builds as the Drama Club joins an official summer stock production!

It’s summer, which for Ridgeport Drama Club means summer stock, and a chance to test their mettle on (or behind) a real stage. This year, the production stars Shawn Nolan, a young TV actor, and the members of the DC who get jobs as interns are thrilled to work with a real star. But as the Sharks and Jets fight onstage in West Side Story, the tensions between the various interns begin to mount as well. Meanwhile, Reese finds herself falling for the show’s star. Can the Drama Club get it together and keep the show from falling apart?
Book 3
New York Times Bestselling author Peter Lerangis delivers a well-cast drama with his third installment in the Drama Club series. 

For the Spring production, the Drama Club decides to do something different, something meatier. So they convince Mr. Levin to let them do an independent production of a serious play—a play with issues—and raw language—and some controversy. (Just the thing to impress those college admissions boards.)  When opening night comes around, the show has a piddling turnout. The audience is nearly silent, and the cast thinks it’s a flop. But the next night the place is packed. The second performance is electric. Great, right? Not exactly. A parent lodges a complaint, saying the play is inappropriate for high school. Then someone publishes a piece in the school paper that makes the rehearsal process appear to be rife with all kinds of sordid behavior. There is a huge outcry from the parents and from the school administration, and Mr. Levin is in real trouble. Now the Drama Club members have to band together to help save their advisor from being fired!


“Overall, a solid and well-cast production.”—School Library Journal on The Big Production 
Book 2
Rumor has it that there’s a casting director coming to see the Big Spring Musical, Grease, and immediately the drama in Drama Club starts heating up. Auditions are swamped, emotions run high, and everyone is stressing to make sure that every last detail—in both performance and production—is exactly right. Meanwhile, it’s all just a bit too much for Brianna, who takes some desperate measures to keep her head above water. Can the Drama Club nail their performance and keep Brianna from falling apart? And if they do, will the casting director take notice? It could be the chance of a lifetime, and no one wants to be the one to blow it.
Book 1
It’s a new school year, and for Casey Chang it’s a chance to make a fresh start away from the bad memories in her old town. But for the Drama Club of Ridgefield High, it means a chance to recruit new members. And Brianna Glaser—the Type A co-president of the club—has her sights set on the new girl. But Casey soon finds herself sucked into the excitement and drama. For these kids, Drama Club isn’t just about a school play, it’s about passion and dreams and the future. All Casey wanted was a new life for herself, but Drama Club has opened up a whole new world.
