Rockbridge Academy Presents

Drama Program

General Information

The Rockbridge Academy drama program is designed to give students an in depth understanding of what it takes to bring a full-length musical, or musical variety production, to completion. Students learn the value of godly character, hard work, and cooperation as they go from initial auditions and read-throughs, to the final curtain, always encouraged to keep in mind standards of Truth, Goodness, and Beauty (Php. 4:8). In addition, musical stage productions serve a distinctive role in giving "flesh" to the concept of rhetoric. Students use their talents to persuade and articulate in a way that a traditional class never could. Students are encouraged to be part of the stage crew if that is where their particular gifts and talents lie.

Typically, students perform a full-length musical, and a student-lead Variety Show, in alternating years. Last year, Rockbridge Academy performed You're A Good Man, Charlie Brown, to rave reviews.
