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.
All younger students participate in a number of traditional shows, so that every student is introduced to theater before high school. These performances are usually directed by the grade level literature teacher. The 6th-12th grade students have the opportunity to audition for high school drama productions, which are directed by the high school drama teacher. Each year family and friends in the community are welcome to attend these two, large-scale performances.
Sample Performances by Younger Students:
5th Grade Drama--A reenactment of the signing of the US Constitution in September
7th Grade Drama--A Shakespearean play performed in May
