* ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad''. The whole school was after Steve and his friends. They got away from the drama club by insulting their performance of ''Theatre/ByeByeBirdie''.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheSpectacularSpiderMan'': The "Growing Pains" episode is like this. Every member of the cast has a line to audition with, but Flash (the Jerk Jock) and his ex girlfriend, the cheerleader (The Libby) don't get parts, but about everyone else does...except Peter, who was too busy fighting Venom and Col. Jupiter to audition.

* ''Hamlet 2'': Made of PlayingWith this trope.
* ''HighSchoolMusical'': The drama club - run by the [[AdultsAreUseless clueless]] and overly strict teacher - is relatively neutral in terms of where it fits on the social structure: Its ruled by the AlphaBitch and looks down on most other groups but isn't popular with the school either. Then, [[{{LovableJock}} Troy]] and [[{{HollywoodNerd}} Gabriella]], from two totally different social groups join the club, panicking the drama members and throwing the rest of the school into anarchy.
* ''Jawbreaker'': The most popular boy in school is in the drama club. One of the Libbys suggests that 100% heterosexuality is not guaranteed.

* ''Manga/MonthlyGirlsNozakiKun'' has two characters in the drama club: club president Hori, a talented actor who's not quite tall enough to be a leading man and now mostly works behind the scenes, and the [[{{Bifauxnen}} princely Kashima]], whose mind frequently jumps to strange conclusions. Nozaki also writes scripts for the club in exchange for Hori drawing backgrounds for his manga.

Ah, the arts. Watching a play done by professionals is great. Watching a play done by a bunch of acne faced teens? Not so much.

Most of you had a drama club in school. You know, a place where all those 'weird' kids went to hang out?

Usually, the Drama Club will be run by a WideEyedIdealist teacher who believes everyone should get along, and what better way to get along then by performing a low class version of ''Theatre/RomeoAndJuliet''? The club's members will almost always be a RagTagBunchOfMisfits who don't fit anywhere else. If there are any kids who do actually enjoy acting, the JerkJock and the AlphaBitch will always assume there's something wrong with them and tease them for it, because after all, only ''weird'' kids join the Drama Club, right?

hormone-filled young people? Well, the Drama Club will be run by a WideEyedIdealist teacher who believes everyone should get along, and what better way to get along then by performing a low class version of ''Theatre/RomeoAndJuliet''? results can vary.

* ''LizzieMcGuire'': The drama club makes a one-time appearance in the episode where Lizzie is running for School President. They're described as "second-tier popular", and Gordo has her try to schmooze them for votes. She's sucked into their clique, which seems to involve little more than wearing dark clothes and sunglasses.
* ''{{Victorious}}'': Another arts magnet school, another case of drama club being popular and SeriousBusiness.

* In ''Rally Round the Flag, Boys!'' by Max Shulman, Laura Beauchamp organizes theatrical clubs at every school and religious institute in Putnam's Landing, with her 60-year-old husband Willard inevitably among the amateurs enlisted to act in her productions. The arrival of a Nike missile base in Putnam's Landing gives her a new casting idea for her planned Fourth of July pageant reenacting the landing of the Redcoats on Ram's Head Beach. With the Minutemen played by the [[GreaserDelinquents New Delinquents]] of Webster High School and the Redcoats played by members of the 992nd Anti-Aircraft Missile Battalion, unrehearsed fighting ensues.
