 "Act well your part; there the entire honor lies."   This performing arts course explores the history of the American musical theater as well as further developing the skills necessary for performing in musical theater. Students will develop their acting, movement, and vocal performance techniques through active participation and reflection.  Since this is a performance based class, most class periods will be spent in rehearsal mode and will culminate in a full spring musical. Participation in this class also helps with membership in the International Thespian Society.

Our Mission Statement is to Edify, Entertain and Educate.

Edify– Although a dramatic production may not necessarily occur in the context of public worship, the content of our shows may often communicate a spiritually edifying message. While not all dramatic productions may be overt in their message, it is our goal to select plays for performance which will elicit discussion and spiritual growth.

Entertain – Through our plays we hope to make our audiences happy or to otherwise touch the emotions. This is a special ministry to people and a blessing to be able to use one's talents to bring glory to our Creator even as we bring joy to His people.

Educate – As with all co-curricular activities at GCA, drama has an educational objective. Our performers and crew learn and improve their skills of acting, singing, and choreography, deepening their own understanding of the human condition by portraying complex characters. All students who participate learn the importance of teamwork, commitment, and encouragement.
