Bob: "Sure thing."
Sue: "Isn't it a little odd that neither of us find this remotely sexual?"
Bob: "Nah, we're drama kids. By the way, party at the coffe shop after tear down."

A drama kid is someone who spends the majority of their time on the stage/drama room.

You never see what goes on when they are in there. Except in rare occasions when the stage curtains/wall is open and people in the Caf see whats going on.
Drama kids hang out with other drama kids and are generally very flirtatious.
They are some of the coolest kids you will ever know, no matter how nerdy they seem. Many spend their free time gaming, playing Dungeons and Dragons and other drama related things.
Generally drama kids have chosen to spend their high school years on the stage and with that chose become social outcasts. However, the drama kid does not care.
There are two types of drama kids:
The, "OMG, I don't care what you think, so I'll do it anyway." Drama kid, Type A.
and the "Oh, well I'll just be quiet in front of people." Drama kid, Type B

Type A drama kid is the same on stage/ in the drama room, as they are anywhere else, the do not tone down their wildness for your benefit.

Type B Drama kid is someone who acts completely different in front of Drama kids, but shys away in front of others.

Drama kids can be indentified by their, original choices in clothing, and general awsomeness.

Someone who likes drama. They will often appear in (or try out for) every single school play that there is. And can often be seen spending endless hours in or around the drama and chorus rooms of the average high school. Some drama kids are also very involved with chorus. They love to perform and they love the arts. They are also known to take a lot of art or language classes. A small portion of drama kids may also take band.

If there is a starbuck's in the area, they can often be found there after school, on weekends, after a performance, or just about any random time of day(because true drama kids need no reason to go to starbucks). Other hangouts for drama kids are the mall, a bookstore, taco bell, chick-fil-a, and school. Particularly when they are working on a production, drama kids practically live at school. Whether its staying late because of a rehersal or working on a set piece, or just talking with other drama kids, they're there(at school-usually by the drama and/or chorus rooms). Drama kids are also known to get all of their friends and/or family into drama and the arts.
If you go to the school play(or get dragged there by someone against your will), they are usually the main characters. If you repeatedly go to stuff that's sponsered by the drama department or a drama class, they're always there or involved in some way.

"There go all those drama kids again, at starbucks."

A group of loud high schoolers that don't care about what other people think. They think their stereotype of being attention hogs, loud, and obsessed is hilarious and do nothing to change it. They are fun, crazy, and yes... quite horny. They love singing songs and talking about plays even when they know it annoys others. They dislike preps and jocks because sports are ranked higher than theater and are basically an awesome bunch of people.
"Are you going to see RENT?"
"Hell yea... 525,600 minutes, how dooo youu" proceeds to sing.
Jock yells- "SHUT UP"
Drama kids laugh and sing louder.

(n) group of children who can talk in any accent, any form of feeling and then snap out of it in a second. Drama kids usually don't care what people think about them because they all think that they'll be famous and show all the kids that made fun of them throughout school by being in hollyword and broadway. They tend to spontaneously burst out into any broadway song and act with any other drama kid standing in close proximity. When really the farthest they'll get is probably in crapy comercials and comunity theatres. The more you suck up to your director, the better part your gonna get, promise.
The Drama Kids know how to have a good time.

Drama kids are the bees knees. They are the kids that have a all acess pass to every clique, and they do not have a clique themselves. They are very lovable, unique, and funny. They make songs at lunchtables, listen to theater music, and have the time of their lives. Dislike preps and jocks cause they have no life at all. :) ha ha i'm a drama kid, and all above describes me. But really drama kids are the ones that if you were stuck at the bottom of a well, you would spend hours singing songs, and talking about whatever. They are truly the coolest people you will EVER meet.

Drama kids are usually rather wierd. It is a common misconception that they are loud and abnoxious, which is not the case at all. Drama kids are both passionate and life-loving. They all MUST depsise gym and sunlight, or else they are NOT a true drama freak. They refuse to dress out for gym, and are often disturbingly pale due to the amount of time they spend inside the theater. They are often indie and alot of them like skinny jeans a little too much. Drama kids wear alot of rainbow shirts and enjoy randomly bursting out into song during lunch. They love to have seizure-like spazz attacks in front of people, and think that it is hilarious when they all get shunned by the preps and jocks. Drama kids are always friends with eachother, and they rarely break out of their tightly knit group. They listen to show tunes obsessively and over the weekend when asked by a non-drama kid to hang out, they usually reply "no i'm watching rent maybe later."
the only way drama kids get through annoying classes like gym is by imagining that they are completely alone on stage.

it's kind of wierd.

but i LOOVE drama kids. they are like the coolest people in the universe.
Kathydrama kid: omg brandon did you see rent??
brandonjock: what the hell is rent? my parents are rich...we OWN a house.
kathy: *rolls eyes dramatically* you are a disgrace to the planet earth. *turns and quickly sprints off toward the drama room to sing the sound of music with fellow drama kids*
