Drama club is coming to Nickelodeon on March 20th but before we get to that premiere date you can check out the show digitally on March 13th on the Nick app and Nick.com. This new comedy series will be done mockumentary-style as we follow a middle school drama club trying to change the Tookus Middle School perception of their club. The club will get a new student director who will try and garner the principal’s support while trying to solve the problem of having a student get injured. They will try and look to a sport team for help in getting the drama club back on track.
The cast looks great with Telci Huynh as Mack, Nathan Janak as Oliver, Lili Brennan as Darcy, Kensington Tallman as Bianca, Chase Vacnin as Bench and Artyon Celestine as Skip. Drama Club will be 10 half-hour episodes to see if this club can turn it around, and it sounds like it will be a big hit with the targeted audience as the mockumentary-style plays perfectly with a drama club.
