HCA offers drama class beginning in middle school as an elective. Our drama class at HCA provides an exciting array of experiences and training in multiple facets of the dramatic arts, including ensemble work, improvisational skills, basic stage movement, vocal quality, critiquing skills, body awareness (movement), interpretation and detailed characterization skills. Many of our current students take their skills learned and perform outside of our school through a local not-for-profit theatre production company. Students discover how dramatic storytelling reflects the beauty of God’s ultimate story, the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Students are given many opportunities to cultivate their dramatic talents for God’s glory.
Our HCA Puppet and Stick Ministry team is offered to students in the 5th-12th grade. Students travel and perform skits at local events, schools and nursing homes. There is no other ministry quite like puppet ministry! Puppets are effective in reaching, teaching, and entertaining audiences of all ages and are a GREAT way to teach about the Bible! These animated characters live in an imaginary world, but they can express, talk and sing about real issues too. Our students become storytellers, and use their creativity to share important Biblical messages.
