Take a bow.
The WC theatre program, which serves students in grades six through 12, has a standing tradition of excellence. For over three decades, students have received a comprehensive education in both traditional and contemporary theory, comedic improvisation, musical theatre, and performance technique. WC’s dramatic arts program examines theatre as a creative and multi-disciplinary art form, providing exposure to various theatrical genres and styles and opportunities for practical experience on the stage as well as classroom instruction. Currently, we cast four plays a year, allowing students to participate in both theatre and other areas of the arts or athletics. By creating good work habits, time management skills, poise, and cooperative learning experiences, theatre prepares students for success in any field.
Drama Teacher David O’Roark says his goal is for the program to be in alignment with the overall mission of WC. The one thing we strive for most is to perform things about which we can be proud. Quality is a goal, but more so we want the students to be satisfied that what they are doing on stage is in line with the moral character we strive to instill in them elsewhere at the school. We want parents to be proud of their children, and we want the name of Jesus to be honored by what we do.
