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.

ThespianThe International Thespian Society (ITS) is an honor society for high school theatre students. It is a division of the Educational Theatre Association. Thespian Troupes serve students in grades 9-12. Our motto is "ACT WELL YOUR PART; THERE ALL THE HONOR LIES." Recognition from an international honor society lends additional stature to student honors and achievement and the program as a whole in the eyes of the school, community, and colleges. The society works very much like our houses with students earning progression of ranks through points they have earned through ACA theatre, theatre classes, projects, and more.

Our troupe meets on selected Fridays each semester from 2:15-3:15 in the Performing Arts Building. The troupe director is Mrs. Dawn Redden. All ACA students are encouraged to attend our troupe meetings as well as interested teachers, faculty, and staff.

"We are a vibrant community of students, artists, scholars, and craftspeople who come together to tell stories and because theatre tells stories through words and gestures, light and shadow, through music and dance, fabric and color, and through technology, we believe that making theater is a process of learning how to make it collaboratively."

- Mrs. Post, founder of ACA's Performing Arts program
