Musical Theatre and Drama
The Drama and Theatre Department at Saint James Christian Academy is designed to encourage students to discover and develop the talents God has given them. A Drama Club is offered in the Fine Arts enrichment programs for grades 4th-12th. In Middle School, students are given the option to choose the Performing Arts or Drama class as an elective. Students receive an introduction to the basics of acting, including pantomime, improvisation, characterization, vocal projection, and auditioning. The faculty encourages all students to become involved whether they desire to be on the stage or behind the scenes. Costuming, theatrical makeup and set design are also required curriculum for our Speech and Drama class in the High School. SJCA seeks to encourage and nurture young performers to articulate their acting techniques and apply them through a dramatic production.
