Christian Life Theater Arts Philosophy
The ultimate goal of the Fine Arts Department is to encourage students to express themselves creatively and actively participate in the fine arts not only as a form of entertainment and enlightenment, but also as a method of worship to praise our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

Therefore, the objective of theater classes here is to educate the students in performance and production aspects of theater as well as to help students gain a historical, theoretical, and contemporary understanding and appreciation for this art form.

School House Rock

 

A pop culture phenomenon comes to the musical stage in Schoolhouse Rock Live! The Emmy Award-winning 1970s Saturday morning cartoon series that taught history, grammar, math and more through clever, tuneful songs is hitting the Christian Life stage on April 7th and 8th. 

Schoolhouse Rock Live! follows Tom, a nerve-wracked school teacher who is nervous about his first day of teaching. He tries to relax by watching TV, when various characters representing facets of his personality emerge from the set and show him how to win his students over with imagination and music, through such songs as "Just a Bill," "Lolly, Lolly, Lolly" and "Conjunction Junction."


 
About Sister Act
Much like the movie of the 1990's, Sister Act, the Musical tells the story of Deloris Van Cartier, a lounge singer, who is hidden in a convent after she witnesses her boy friend murder someone. While the screen version takes place in Las Vegas and surrounding area, the stage version is set at the height of the Disco Era, in Philadelphia. With music my Alan Menken, it's a Tony Award winning show that will have you digging out your platform shoes and bell bottoms (not to mention getting that white "John Travolta" suit out of moth balls).
Going under the name "Sister Mary Clarence", Deloris has trouble fitting into her surroundings, until she's given the charge to work with the choir. Her enthusiasm and electric personality bring all the sisters to a greater understanding of what it takes to reach people, and in return, Deloris finds out something about the fellowship of believers and what a change in her heart attitude toward Jesus can do for her.
