The drama performance was carried out by students from class XI MIA at SMA Darut Taqwa Purwosari who had issues with low self-confidence. To address this, the researcher implemented the lottery method combined with vocal exercises and expressive therapy. The aim of this study was to enhance the competence of students in expressing character dialogues in drama performances using the lottery method. The research sample consisted of 32 students from the Indonesian Language subject with the Basic Competency "Expressing Character Dialogues in Drama Performances" in the second semester of the academic year 2022-2023. Data were collected through questionnaires, observation notes, and evaluations conducted from the beginning of the research until Cycle II. Observation notes were used to assess improvement. The results showed that the lottery method could be used to enhance students' competence in expressing character dialogues in drama performances. The improvement in students' competence was evident in the quality of the process, as indicated by their sincerity, courage, and concentration during the learning and practice sessions, creating an enjoyable atmosphere. Students also did not feel bored as the activities in the lottery method were varied. The assessment of drama practice was based on four aspects: intonation, pronunciation, interpretation, and expression. The highest score for each aspect was 4, with a total score of 20. The improvement in the process and product was observed by comparing the average scores obtained in Cycle II with those obtained in Cycle I. The average score for student practice in Cycle I was 10.01, while in the final Cycle II, it increased to 14.55. This indicates an increase in the average score by 4.54 or 45.35%. This improvement demonstrates that the implementation of actions in Cycle I and Cycle II successfully enhanced students' competence in expressing character dialogues in drama performances.
