Our GROWING Drama Program
The ability to communicate ideas in public settings is vital in fulfilling the Great Commission, as is serving in high profile positions, leading organizations, representing disenfranchised groups, and in so many other aspects of serving the common good. In order to help develop that ability, King’s Way offers drama as part of its high school programs.
The mission of our high school drama department is to help students discover their personal gifts in Dramatic Arts through exploring areas such as scene writing, monologues, improvisation, play production, speech and public performances.
In 2019, King’s Way partnered with Journey Theater to offer after-school classes onsite. King’s Way currently offers drama to 7th and 8th grade students and will include drama as a high school course offering in Fall 2020.
The focus of our drama classes are to engage students in self-discovery and development of confidence with:
- Public speaking
- Scene work, monologues, plays, improv
- School performances
- Being a part of a social group working towards to a goal or performanance
