The Christian Academy of Louisville drama program was founded in 1981. Each year, two full-scale productions are staged: a mystery play in the fall and alternating family plays/musicals in the spring. Additionally throughout the years, high school drama students continue to perform chapel skits, children’s stories for elementary, and improv, complemented by Theater Arts class for introductory acting and production skills. Though all ages may be involved with school productions, elementary students also participate in PAC (Performing Arts Club) and middle-school drama club students write, rehearse, and produce their own skits/plays.
Since 2010, the program has used the name DramatiCALs, indicating the ministry’s mission statement: “Drama at CAL is whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.” (I Corinthians 10:31).
