Arts

Theatre

The GRACE Theater program includes elective classes in acting and set design as well as two drama productions each year that are open to middle and high school students.

Acting

Students  delve into what it means to be an actor, including how to prepare and perform for an audition, blocking, dialects, improvisation, scene analysis, and creating a godly character. May include presentations for chapel and other events.

Set Design

Students learn to design, construct, and break down theater sets. This will involve the use of power tools. Students will be instructed in the safe use of the tools and will be required to construct the sets for next year’s productions. Students will become proficient in the use of power drill, miter saw, hammers, pliers, and tape measure and other tools. Student will be able to construct set walls (known as flats), doorways, flats that will move on casters to transform the set, stairways, and other set pieces as needed for the productions. Students will become proficient at stage lighting and backstage management. This class requires the ability to be able to lift and lug 2x4s of various lengths, flats and other set pieces needed in the construction of the set. Students will also be expected to work as stage crew for the plays. Come prepared for construction.
