LMH Fall 2022 Show Recap

The House at Pooh Corner

Congratulations to LMH’s Drama Department for an amazing production of “The House at Pooh Corner,” as our fall play this year. The show is based on the Winnie the Pooh stories by A.A.Milne.


The entire story is told through the imagination of six year old Christopher Robin.  It is a beautiful morning in the 100 acre woods. Winnie the Pooh, Piglet, Eeyore and all their friends  are anticipating a “mergency meeting” called by Christopher Robin and his friend Backson.  When he arrives, he tells them that he is being sent away to something called education.  Terrified of the unknown, they all decide together to run away to the South Pole.  But before they can leave, they encounter a noisy, new, bouncy creature that invades their serene forest and destroys Owl’s house.  But by the end of the play, everything seems to have righted itself, as it always does in a child’s imagination.

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

LMH art courses cultivate reflection and aesthetic sensitivity to cultural expressions worldwide. An awareness and appreciation for all of God’s earth and people leads to constructive creativity.

At the high school, twelve art courses are offered, including sculpture, drawing, painting, ceramics, design, photography and digital photography. Explore all of the options for art classes at our full curriculum guide below.


LMH provides students with on-stage drama/theatre opportunities that cultivate and showcase creativity and self-expression while challenging them to a deeper understanding of people and issues.

LMH students have the opportunity to participate in two dramatic productions each year, one of which is a major musical. LMMS students have the opportunity to participate in some LMH productions and also have their own middle school production.

Drama Statement

The LMH drama program is committed to authentic story telling. . . 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.



Vocal Music

Students have the opportunity to participate in several vocal groups and take voice instruction. The school’s auditioned select choir, the Campus Chorale, has an established reputation for excellence, and many Chorale members win local, regional and state awards.


LMH offers performance opportunities with String Orchestra, Concert Band and Jazz Ensemble. Piano and guitar classes are available as part of the music curriculum. Especially gifted students can participate in the Advanced Music Studio at the Lancaster Campus.

Middle School Music

Sixth grade has a general music class throughout the school year and may also elect to be in one of the performing groups: Concert Band, String Ensemble or Choir ($20 music fee for choir). Seventh-grade students who are not part of the performing ensembles are required to be in a general music class. Eighth-grade students may elect to take music classes.

Mennonite Children's Choir of Lancaster

A program of Lancaster Mennonite School as a service to the community, MCCL offers auditioned and non-auditioned choral opportunities for children in grades 1 through 12. Singers do not need to attend Lancaster Mennonite School to participate.
