Spring Musical and Fall Drama
Involving about 75 students, the Blackhawk Christian Theatre mounts two full-scale productions each year: one straight play and one musical. Students in grades 9 through 12 are invited to audition for roles in either/both productions. Students are also encouraged to become involved in the areas of tech support, stage crew, stage management and house management. Students who earn at least 10 theatre points (approximately 100 hours of service) are invited to join the BCS chapter (#5242) of the International Thespian Society. New ITS members are inducted in a ceremony in the spring.
BCS offers two one-semester classes in Theatre Arts. Students may take either or both semesters, in any order. Semester 1 focuses on the actor’s craft: voice and movement, relaxation, concentration, and character development. Semester 2 offers a concentration in the physical theatre, the process of mounting a play and a brief introduction to the history of theatre. Both courses meet daily for one semester.
