Drama at Grove City Christian Academy is an exciting opportunity for students to hone their acting and public speaking skills, create a beautiful work of art, and bond with a community of peers and instructors. Each year, GCCA students from 7th-12th grade perform classic plays to exuberant audiences. These have included The Mousetrap, Harvey, Twelve Angry Jurors, Much Ado About Nothing, The Hound of the Baskervilles, The Importance of Being Earnest, Little Women, and A Midsummer Night's Dream.
Mr. Ross Kucks, our Latin and humanities teacher, is our theater director and has been directing plays for the last twelve years. He works hard to help students reach their full potential on the stage and thoroughly enjoys the process of directing. Mrs. Faith Fedor is co-director and works tirelessly every year to create wonderful costumes, find props, and help give acting direction to the students. Mrs. Michelle Ritenour has functioned for several years as producer, managing publicity and helping ease the managerial tasks associated with the play. In the last three years, they have been joined by a student director.
In addition to the cast of the play, the theater program has students running sound, lights, and backstage. The program has also developed a drama club whose job is to set up and tear down for the shows and provide concessions. Each of these operations is managed by adult volunteers who make up the production crew. The number of people involved in the productions has grown every year, and it is their willingness to give of time and resources that makes this program so successful!
