Welcome to Cornerstone Theatre Company, a ministry of Many but One.
The objective for the Theatre Arts courses at Many but ONE is to make students effective communicators who can bring to life relatable stories of creation, the fall and redemption, both onstage and in personal interactions. Instruction will focus on how to glorify God with their body, voice and imagination. Students will be able to recognize and empathize with humanity, ultimately using their communication skills to minister to others and to defend their faith.
Starting in August, classes meet weekly. Classes are available for elementary, middle school and high school students. Check the schedule for the day and time of each class. For the first half of the year, we will focus on acting and music techniques, history and lots of theatrical fun. These classes equip students for the second half of the year…our Spring Musical Production.
In January, students in middle and high school will have the opportunity to audition for a role in the Spring Musical Production. All those who want to participate will be given a position either in the cast or the crew. The title of this production will be announced prior to the end of the fall semester with a very clear and specific rehearsal schedule. In January, Monday classes will become Production classes and will be longer with additional Saturday rehearsals starting in February. We will end our year with a fantastic musical theatre performance. There are monthly fees for our classes as well as an additional performance fee. After the performance, classes will continue throughout the month of May.
Elementary students will continue their regular scheduled class time and will either participate in the main stage production with a limited role or will have a production of their own. Some main stage productions may be appropriately challenging for older students, but not a good fit for those who are younger. Those decisions will be made and communicated each fall giving families time to prepare for the spring term.
Thank you for your interest in Cornerstone Theatre Company. We look forward to seeing you soon!
