The overlying philosophy of the Theater Department at Northwest Christian Schools is: We believe we can use the gifts and talents God has given us to glorify Him in all we do. Using these talents is an act of worship ( Colossians 3:23 ). We believe in excellence, integrity, hard work, and total enjoyment of the theatrical process, in other words, FUN!
The goal of High School theater is to produce two plays per year. The Theater Class not only completes a fully-staged “straight play” (meaning non-musical), but also is introduced to basic acting methods and theater history, learns stage direction and blocking, creates a Director’s portfolio, and performs in multiple projects, including perfecting a monologue for auditioning. The Fall production is accomplished through the High School Theater Class curriculum taught and directed by Jennifer Frankovic. The Spring production is an extra-curricular, musical production directed by Katie Segalla and open to all student body grades 6 – 12.
Letter from 2020 Spring Musical Director, Katie Segalla:
As a NWCS theater alumni, it is truly an honor to be in the directors seat for the spring musical, Mary Poppins! While the magic of Mary Poppins spurs on the change in the Banks family my hope and prayer is that this show will remind each of us the transformative power the gospel can have on us individually and in our families. I hope you will join us for this truly magical production March 12-21!
