Once you are a lady of Inferno, a number of dedication activities, chants, Steps and positive mantras are memorized for the entire school to see with a coming out show.
Student Events Committee

In this club, you will get the chance to plan many of the activities that make ESA special and fun! Participants plan spirit weeks, all-school trips such as our annual ice skating trip, movie nights, school parties, and more. This club is open to anyone who wants to take on a leadership role at ESA.
Rehearsal schedule to be determined after casting
Each semester students work together to perform a full-length play. These plays are memorized and rehearsed until they are ultimately performed for students, staff, parents, and the outside world at the end of the semester. Past shows have included: Noises Off, The Crucible, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, Twelve Angry Men, Boeing Boeing, Dangerous Liaisons, and The Mousetrap. The fall play tends to have a larger cast and is a chance to involve students in the experience of drama while the spring show tends to have a smaller cast with greater requirements for memorization.
