Middle and high school students have opportunities to audition for the GCS Theatre Program twice yearly. Upper level students selected for performing roles will enroll in Theatre as an elective course. Theatre students meet periodically for rehearsal of the upcoming production. Other opportunities to participate outside of performing roles include set design and sound and lighting production. Each year GCS hosts two theatre performances by our middle and high schools performing arts students.
Performing Arts Winter Production
Each winter our Performing Arts students present a full, theatrical production in celebration of the Christmas season. Past performances have included “Elf, Jr. the Musical”, “Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe” and “The Nutcracker”. Performance and production roles are filled by our middle and high school students, with a handful of special roles for elementary students when a little person is needed.
Performing Arts Spring Production
Our middle and high school Performing Arts students present a full, theatrical production every Spring. Past performances have included “The Wizard of Oz,” “Alice in Wonderland” and “Annie Jr.” with a biblical spin. As always, a few of our elementary school students could get a shot at a role as well!
All kindergarten and elementary students participate in our two annual elementary programs. Students also have opportunities for special performing roles which serve as a great introduction to our Performing Arts program available to our middle and high school students. Check our calendar for upcoming performances.
This celebration of Christmas performed by our elementary students is a guaranteed crowd pleaser! Produced by our Performing Arts department, the production includes performances by the Elementary Choir and special roles from elementary students. Our middle and high school students assist with sound, lighting and video production.
The Elementary Spring performances are fun and biblically based, giving students an opportunity to display their hard work in music, choir and performing arts, while learning a valuable biblical principle or life lesson.
Enrichment Camp Program
The Elementary Enrichment Program offers a variety of after school performing arts camps, including Ballet and Gymnastics on a staggered schedule.
