The Drama program is intended to give high school students an overview of the theater arts, including developing and improving acting skills and techniques as well as getting hands-on experience with the technical side of producing a play. All students will participate in all acting exercises as well as technical training.
Classes offered are Middle School Drama (7th and 8th grades) and High School Drama.

Christianity and Drama
Classes are directed using a Christian worldview, teaching the virtues of Christ and the traits we strive to
acquire throughout our lives as we build our relationship with the Lord. In Drama, we integrate the Bible
both directly and indirectly: We use the Bible as a resource for dramatic material, using Biblical stories for
improv, scene work, and developing additional acting skills. We also use the Bible as a guide for
developing appropriate classroom behavior that shows respect and love for our fellow performers and
classmates as well as teaching students to analyze character work without judging the actor.
