Drama is part of the English Department. As such, drama is seen as developing an understanding of a form of communication that can be of service in the Kingdom of God to tell powerful stories about the human condition.
Each campus engages students in drama at all levels. The drama program varies among the campuses in terms of the degree of student involvement and number of productions. Check the campus sections of the website for details about drama on each campus.
The LM drama program is committed to authentic story telling.
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.
