Picture this scene: you on stage. The curtain lifts with bright lights shining overhead, and the audience extends before you in a hazy shadow. In that still moment, the words you’ve rehearsed so many times before explode into your consciousness. In a bold voice, you deliver your lines with a magic that can only be found in live theater.
As part of Calvin’s theatre program, you’ll discover that magic—and the message behind it. Here, theater tells stories of diverse human experiences from all around God’s world. We challenge ourselves and our audience to see the world differently and to act with empathy and compassion. Whether your role is directing, acting, producing, or designing, you’ll stretch your artistic abilities and leave a lasting impression on the audience.
Here, you’ll use the spotlight to illuminate something much greater than yourself.
