Performing Arts as the Gateway to Self-Expression

 

From its foundation, Augustine Christian Academy has invited its students to participate in our performing arts programs. These programs, which include show choir and theatrical productions, are natural companions to our objective of preparing students for excellence in whatever field they may pursue.

Our show choir plays an active role in representing ACA. The show choir performs Singing Valentines each February, headlines our Little Theater productions throughout each school year, and so much more.

Through our theatrical productions, like our Fall production of Beauty and the Beast and our Spring production of Willy Wonka, Jr., Augustine Christian Academy is committed to preparing students for skilled and winsome communication. Students enjoy the opportunity to audition for roles and appear on stage. Such challenges teach students the power of presentation and imbue them with the courage for self-expression. From beginning to end, these productions are student-led, overseen by the direction of Mrs. Gale Post and the co-direction of Mrs. Dawn Redden. Sets are designed and built by the Stagecraft class, a highlight that students always remember as a happy, lively “boot camp” in creativity, resourcefulness, and teamwork. The entire experience builds true camaraderie and positive working relationships.
