Our mission for the Theatre Department is to provide an educational experience which enables all students to grow personally through creative expression, while nurturing their performance skills to the fullest. This course will provide students opportunities to develop an appreciation for not only acting but also the collaborative effort of all involved in a theatrical production including set design, make-up, costumes, sound, lighting, directing, music etc.

"The Wizard of Oz" is great but The Gospel is better. Why? God planted in your heart a desire for heaven. A dream of somewhere where there isn't any trouble. God is the one who put the rainbow in the sky. He is the Lord of the storm. He said I am the way; the road. Follow Me. He put the brain in your head and the heart in your chest. He is who gives us courage. He has defeated the evil one. We do not have to hide behind a mask with him. He knows exactly who we are and He loves us. He has made a place for us, and He will take us there so that we can finally be where our hearts have always longed to be. Not somewhere over the rainbow but home with our true family. And there we will sing there is no one like our God, and there is no place like home. It's a real land where dreams really do come true. That's not magic. That's a miracle.
"Beauty and the Beast" is great but The Gospel is better. Why? We are made to be children of the King. But our sin has placed us under a curse and has made us selfish and ugly monsters. We cannot escape. But Christ comes from outside. He made himself a slave so we could be free. He is the one who was prophesied would break the spell. He sees our hideousness, but He does not turn away. Instead, He loves us while we are still beasts, and His love breaks the power of the curse. Yet He is much greater than Belle. It took more than love to save us. He became the beast and took the curse so we could be called beautiful children of God. As JRR Tolkien said, this story is supreme; and it is true. Art has been verified. In His father’s House there are many rooms. And because of His sacrifice, the triune God invites you to “Be our Guest.”
