Drama & Speech

Theatre

Middle, high, and sometimes elementary school students may audition to be involved as performers or technical crew members in SCS’s fall and spring productions (musical and non-musical). SCS has presented over 40 successful productions, some of the most recent being the Broadway musical hit The Secret Garden, Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, the Rodgers and Hammerstein classic The King & I, a compelling stage adaptation of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, and Disney’s Newsies.

Class Opportunities

Middle and high schoolers have many opportunities to become involved in drama and speech. The Middle School Speech and Debate class focuses on improving the rhetoric and comportment of students by learning style, methods, and historical figures of great speech and debate. Students are able to present speeches to classmates. 

The High School Drama 1 Fundamentals of Acting and Theatre class focuses on performance, as well as other aspects of the theatrical arts, such as history, terminology, and design. Students perform in class, including duet acting, solo acting, group acting, improvisation, and readers theatre. 

The High School Speech and Debate Competitive Forensics class coaches high school students in the art of presentation and critical thinking. Members of this class compete in state and regional tournaments through National Speech and Debate Association (NSDA).

Association Memberships

The drama department is a member of the National Speech and Debate Association (NSDA) and Christians in Theatre Arts.
