Mission Statement: Sharing God’s Truth through Story
The drama department at ALCS provides opportunities for middle school and high school students
to participate in and learn about various aspects of drama and theater. Students are taught that each
performance is an opportunity to bring characters to life, share a story with the audience, inspire and
entertain the audience, and ultimately to do their very best and give glory to God.
The Abundant Life Christian School Drama Department is constantly seeking out new opportunities
for students to engage in the arts, gain valuable experience, and expand their capabilities and talent.
Throughout the school year, students can take part in workshops, scene readings, trips to local theatrical
performances, and technical training sessions. In addition to helping students gain specific skills in
drama and theater, these activities help students to grow in confidence, communication and teamwork.
Middle School and High School Drama classes are held once a week. In addition, Middle School and
High School students can participate in Drama Club. Drama Club takes place once a month after
school in the fall, with additional opportunities as they become available.
ALCS is grateful to be a part of the Overture Center for the Arts Tommy Awards Program. Over the years, we
have had students selected to participate in the Tommy Ensemble as well as the Tommy Awards Student Critic
Program. Participation in the Tommy Awards Program gives our students amazing opportunities for growing their
talent, working with theatre professionals, and more.
Each spring, Abundant Life Christian High School presents a play or musical and offers opportunities for middle school
and elementary students to participate, as available, with the high school students. These productions provide learning
opportunities for our students in on stage areas such as acting, dancing, and singing as well as in off stage areas such
as set painting, props, costumes, lighting, sound, stage management, and more.
