Hebrews 4:16
“For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart.”

The HPCA Drama Department has been so blessed to be growing in faith and serving in love through the theatrical arts. The Drama Department currently consists of a High School Drama Class (9th-12th) with a honors track for Sophomores-Seniors. The Drama department has been entertaining the community of HPCA with enticing murder mystery plays each Spring such as “Back Stage”, “The Perfect Idiot”, and “Our Miss Brooks” and this year we also had our first winter production, “The Shepherds of Saint Francis”.

The theatre department has been actively spreading the word of God by performing student written monologues from the perspective of figures from the Bible for the Green Street Baptist’s Sonshine Fellowship. The theatre department has also done a featured performance for the Westover Harbour Living Center. Along with the performances, the theatre class has had a chance to enjoy performances such as Amahl and the Night Visitors and UNCG’s Antigone.

In this upcoming quarter, we are excited to enter the NCMAE’s Playwriting Competition and attend the play showcase in April. We will also be travelling to Appalachian State to participate in a collegiate theatre workshop experience. We are excited about these opportunities and we look to expand this department in coming semesters.
