The mission of the
StoneBridge Drama Department is to introduce students of every age to
the performing arts, and to instill in them a passion for worship and
excellence through the fine arts. We desire to cultivate a love for,
and skills in the fine arts through nurturing the students' God-given
talents, and providing them with the hands-on experience needed to
grow. Students have the opportunity to develop a love of redemptive
story-telling, just as Jesus Christ set an example for us with His use
of parables. Theater is the primary focus of the drama program at
StoneBridge, although older students have the opportunity to experiment
with film through the annual film project, as well. Through the drama program, students are introduced to various aspects of theater production, including: basic acting, stage management, directing, set construction, costuming, vocal training, dance and choreography.
Younger students participate in a number of traditional shows annually. These performances are usually directed by that grade level's English and Literature teachers. All of the younger students participate in drama, so that every student is introduced to theater in the lower grades. The 8th-12th grade students have the opportunity to audition for the high school drama elective. The high school drama produces two large-scale productions for the StoneBridge family and local community. These shows are directed by the high school drama director and feature the 8th-12th grade drama students.
