BERKELEY HEIGHTS, NJ -  Columbia Middle School students performed in the Fall Drama Workshop on Tuesday afternoon at the school in front of a full audience of family and friends.

The Fall Drama Workshop is a chance for every student to get up on stage and perform, said Diane Corley, Columbia Teacher Advisor of the Drama Club.

The fall performances teach these students about stage presence and classical theater. They learned scenes from famous shows [and not so famous shows] and learned how to project, along with everything else that goes into timing out a good performance.
