Pennsbury Drama has plenty of opportunities for students who do not like to act. Stage Crew allows students to join a hardworking team of individuals who are responsible for many major aspects of not just theatrical shows, but live events throughout the year, including the Prom Fashion Expo, Mr. Pennsbury, the annual POPS! Concert, and the Senior Prom.
