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.
Through our theatrical productions, 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. 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.
We strongly believe that every student should experience live theatre. The life lessons our students learn are far too valuable for just a handful of students to experience. Whether students bring their own body and voice, a needle and thread or a five-thousand-watt light bulb – we invite them to join us and learn to make something as part of a group. It’s a bit scary, but it’s a very exciting way of learning to relate to yourself and to other people.
