Drama

Drama 


The quickening of the blood.
The thunderous applause.
The euphoric elation.
 
As anyone involved in the performing arts can tell you, nothing quite matches a successful live performance.  All the hard work has paid off with a generous and warm response from the audience.

 

Here at LWCA we believe that an opportunity to participate in the fine arts is essential to a well rounded Christian education and a valuable asset to knowledgeable, active and vital Christian citizens.

 

Drama in the classroom builds confidence and self knowledge while building valuable communication skills necessary for employment and life.  Students are taught to be quick on their feet and nimble in the mind while recognizing the importance of polish and rehearsal for any effective presentation.  But overall it is the fun and energy of Drama which keeps the students engaged and learning.

 

The crowning jewel in our drama program is the annual spring production.  This will be the eleventh year that LWCA has presented a full length play.

Though the function of drama and the arts in general is approached with either ambivalence or indifference, we want to show that a Christians can perform shows that entertain and endear without the necessity of being either preachy or a dressed up sermon.  God is alive in all aspects of human culture, including entertaining plays that give people something to laugh at for a couple of hours.
