Drama

Telling Authentic Stories

Drama is a form of communication that can be of service in the Kingdom of God to tell powerful stories about the human condition.

Drama Statement

We provide students with opportunities that cultivate and showcase creativity and self-expression while challenging them to a deeper understanding of God’s world. Theater is an important part of the educational program that transforms lives to change our world.

At times, truthful storytelling requires the portrayal of attitudes and actions that are contrary to our understanding of God’s desire for us. Our belief is that the story challenges us to think critically and wrestle with life and human brokenness. Engaging in this challenge strengthens our ability to serve the world as God’s instruments of healing and hope.

LMH Fall 2022 Production

The House at Pooh Corner

On October 27-30, 2022, The Lancaster Mennonite Drama Department will be presenting their upcoming production of The House at Pooh Corner.

Christopher Robin has decided to run away with his friends Pooh, Piglet, Eeyore, Tigger and the rest. Probably they’ll go to the North Pole or to the South Pole. For there is a dark, mysterious threat that he’s to be sent away to Education. Nobody knows exactly what or where that is, and if he’s sent to such a distant place, what can his friends possibly do without him? So it’s generally agreed that they’ll run away. As the situation becomes clearer, Christopher Robin isn’t quite so sure that running away is the answer.

Schedule of Performances:

  • October 27

LMH Winter 2022 Show Recap

Godspell

Congratulations to LMH’s Drama Department for an amazing production of the musical, Godspell, this winter during their four-show run February 24-27.

“Godspell” is a modern retelling of the parables and teachings of Jesus. Starting with baptism, Jesus gathers a group of followers who in turn help him to share his stories with humor, kindness and love using  “a wide variety of games, storytelling techniques and hefty doses of comic timing.” An eclectic blend of songs, ranging in style from pop to vaudeville, is employed as the story of Jesus’ life moves on and around the stage. Dissolving hauntingly into the Last Supper and the Crucifixion, Jesus’ messages of kindness and love come vibrantly to life.”

The staff congratulates the cast and crew for all their hard work and for putting on a great show!
