Who are the olions?
In 1954, the name OLIONS was chosen by students to identify the Los Alamos High School Drama Club. It's derivation is found in the theatrical term “olio” which means a collection or hodge-podge of any kind of art, drama, or skit. The name truly gasps the spirit of this organization which is made up of a collection of students who represent a broad spectrum of vocational and avocational interests and abilities.
As a part of the high school setting, the Olions’ primary goal is to enhance the educational experience of the members by an involvement in the theater arts… The Olions strive to maintain the highest standards and in no way seek to apologize for their efforts with the pejorative stigma of the term, ‘a high school show.'
Olions is truly the group where any student can explore their talents in a fun and supportive environment while helping to produce amazing shows.
