Theater in the Christian school offers students the opportunity to study and develop ideas, insights, and values while learning the craft of performance. The primary component of theater, dialogue, provides a uniquely effective method for studying the communicative functions of human language. Since communication is a gift from God, its purpose is to glorify and praise Him. As Palmetto Players begins another season, God continues to be at the center of the school’s theatrical department.
