Theater at Heritage Christian School

Heritage Christian School is located in Indianapolis, IN.

When Heritage added drama as a high school class elective in 1975, students performed the first official school production of "Cheaper by the Dozen." Today, elective theater classes are offered to middle school and high school students. Students currently perform two stage productions each year; a musical in the fall and a play in the spring. Both productions attract patrons from within the Heritage family and the Indianapolis community.

Middle School Theater Course

Middle school theater students study a Christian approach to theatrical arts, participate in drama sketches both serious and humorous, and learn to use the theatrical arts to share the gospel and glorify God. Students learn stage directions, creating and developing a believable character and emotional responses using dialogue and physical movement, and study technical aspects such as but not limited to set design, costuming and lighting. This course also provides an opportunity for students to evaluate and critique student performances in a non-threatening environment.

High School Theater Course & Extra-Curricular Opportunities

Theater Arts Acting Course - In this course students will get an introduction into a variety of acting styles and methods. They will begin with physical, and then move into dialectical, then intellectual, and conclude the course by collaborating with a partner on a two-person scene, bringing all of the elements together. Throughout the course students will understand the segments of theater history through a Christian lens and see the connection between creating art and worshiping the  Lord.

Theater Productions - A play or musical is presented each semester by high school students. The cast is selected by an audition process with final determinations made by the theater director.
