The Drama Department...

...started in 2011 and with God’s blessing is thriving! We have grown from a small club that met during lunch hour once a week to prepare Chapel skits to creating two full-length productions each year. Our goal of the Drama Dept. is to use our talents and gifts to provide family-friendly, high quality theatre to our school and community and to give all the glory to God!


Our fine arts department is a group of artists, musicians, singers and actors who worship the Creator by using the gifts and talents He has given them. The Drama department consistently showcases the ingenuity and creativity of our students, staff and families.

What is the Drama Class? 
The Drama Class is not the same thing as the Drama Dept. The Drama Class is a High School Only Elective. It is made up of two parts with a focus on Acting Fundamentals and Technical Theatre skills. Students learn the fundamentals such as acting theory, characterization and physicality which results in gaining confidence through monologues and scenes performed in class. Technical theatre students learn costuming and make-up design, painting and construction in scenic design and technical skills such as lights and sound. Students in Technical Theatre will be creating for the selected show each semester.  Any high school student interested in Drama may join Drama Class.
