Calvary boasts a dynamic theatre program that gives opportunities for students to develop their God-given talents from 3rd-12th grade. We hope to provide enriching experiences in an encouraging Christ-like environment that improves student’s communication skills, confidence, and creative expression.
Drama classes are offered during the school day. These classes expand on the performance and technical aspects of theatre covering topics such as puppetry, improvisation, monologues, voice & movement, playwriting, and costuming. We also provide a range of performance opportunities throughout the school year for budding actors and actresses - semester end drama showcases, One-Act competition, literary competition, our Fall lower school musical, Dinner Theatre, and our Spring upper school musical.
Calvary’s theatre program is one that encourages mentorship throughout the different age groups, with upper school students assisting with lower school productions in areas of interest - costumes, directing, choreography, lighting, etc.
One Act Competition is a yearly competition held through the Georgia Association of Private and Parochial Schools (GAPPS). Held during the Fall Semester, students 7th-12th grade are welcome to audition or sign up to assist in technical elements. The one act play is usually less than 50 minutes long and is a great opportunity for our students to represent Calvary in the arts. With a rehearsal season that lasts about one and a half months, One Act challenges our students to create quality work that glorifies God and can be enjoyed in a short period of time.
Students at Calvary have the opportunity to participate in the Fall lower school musical, the Spring upper school musical, and Dinner Theatre. We audition for the entire season at the beginning of the school year. Students can participate on stage or behind the stage in technical or management roles.
Our annual Dinner Theatre, Broadway Knights, is the biggest fundraising event for our fine arts program. This event has given us the ability to purchase much-needed technical equipment and to improve our fine arts facilities. Our students serve our audience members dinner while also providing musical entertainment!
