    Drama Summer Program is a faith-based program, for ages 5 to 16, that explores and teaches all aspects of drama. We will only accept 50 children into the program. Areas of focus include stage presence, projection, script writing, character development, storytelling, improvisational skills, and set creation. We conclude with a live performance displaying what was learned at our end of summer expo. 

    In additional to drama, you can expect your child to be infused with self-confidence, self-worth, self-awareness,  and a sense of belonging to a team. We also incorporate art and fitness components to lend to an even more well-rounded experience.  Lastly, we encourage originality and freedom of expression, as we esteem ourselves in building up future leaders with character, integrity and  the faith needed to serve as prominent contributors to our future society.
