Lights! Music! Action! Every year the Drama Department at Front Royal Christian School presents a musical that results in annual standing ovations and celebrations of student talents. More often than not students who are least likely to speak out in class find their voice on the FRCS stage.
Our Drama director, Mrs. Tammy Coffman, along with the assistance of our Drama teacher Mrs. Tara Johnson and Music teacher Mrs. Carly Hotek, bring together their years of experience and professional training, to direct, choreograph, orchestrate, and present a show worthy of recognition throughout the community.
Students anxiously await each fall for the name of the musical to be announced. Once announced, they register their interest and can immediately be heard rehearsing throughout the school until the day they are scheduled for audition. Past musicals have ranged from historical themes to classics like Annie. The past two years have been modern pieces, including Shrek and Madagascar.
This year, the 2018 Musical will be Beauty and the Beast and already the cast is working on vocals and steps. Costumes have been ordered and the stage crew and make-up team is gathering ideas.
Getting involved with the Drama Department, whether on stage or behind the scenes, is one of the most popular extracurricular activities at FRCS.
