Participation in art programs has been linked to confidence, positive attitudes and higher test scores. As a Charlotte, N.C., Christian school, we believe our theater program offers an even greater advantage. Through this exciting program, students have numerous opportunities to glorify God throughout the school year.
Plays and Music
Northside Christian Academy encourages all students to be engaged with an extracurricular program of their choice. Many take advantage by participating in our annual plays and musical theater events. The theater program is rigorous, but we consistently see students build lifelong memories and friendships. Additionally, they develop poise and confidence while performing in front of an audience. These transferable skills are incredibly useful in college, job interviews and beyond.
As often as possible, the theater department works to choose productions with Gospel themes and undertones. It is important to select plays that our audiences recognize, but still bring light and truth. In the past, Northside students have performed in the following renowned plays:
- The Hiding Place
- The King and I
- Oliver Twist
In 1 Peter 4:11, we are encouraged to speak as though God were speaking through us, portraying the strength that He provides. At Northside, we believe communication is a gift from God. Helping our students build excellent communication skills will ultimately help them add to God’s kingdom on Earth. We are thankful that our theater program can be used as a powerful tool in this mission.
