Corban Theatre exists to bring glory to God as we educate students in the discipline of Theatre Arts. The act of creation, recorded in Genesis, established without doubt that imagination and creativity are essential parts of God’s character. One way we can learn more about God’s character and live out His image in this world is to participate, as Tolkien states, in “subcreation.”
Active involvement in play productions benefits students by stimulating their creativity and imagination. Assuming a role in a play encourages students’ empathy, challenges their assumptions, and deepens their perspective. Involvement in the performing arts develops thoughtful, honest, and appreciative believers.
Corban Theatre Arts provides a platform for students to use their talents to serve God in creative productions that display the truth of the human condition, the truth of the world we live in, and often the truth of redemption. We do this by imitating the variety found in creation: staging comedies, tragedies, dramas and musicals dedicated to furthering themes that affirm God’s perspective on this world.
