Does a drama club always have to be about a performance?

From the feedback I got on how to make a drama club a success I’ve received some ace advice to draw upon. The majority all say that a focus for the club to work towards is always key. Most drama clubs work towards some sort of performance or sharing – be it anything from a Christmas or Summer Concert to an informal gathering of parents. Or running a club for specific groups of people – such as a gifted and talented group – but still the consensus for that is still working towards a performance.

This is great – but one thing I worry about is that they are all performance focused. Some students enjoy the exploring and creative side of drama without necessarily a big performance in front an audience. Has anyone had success in a drama club without it being performance focused? It’s really good to share this knowledge and experience as I’m sure I’m not the only one who is facing this dilemma.
