The theatre arts fill a unique role in exploring and communicating the human experience. Rooted in the universal need for understanding and communicative expression, theatre enables us to explore thought, feeling, and behavior by mirroring the human condition through imitation and symbolic action. Our theatre program encourages creative thinking, experimentation, and respect for the ideas and efforts of others,  fostering an environment of character development and cultural awareness.
 
Oakcrest strives to provide challenging and age-appropriate theatrical opportunities that encourage girls’ personal, intellectual, character, faith, and leadership development. Performance material is selected for its potential to positively impact family and society.
