Drama as Ministry: The Bible Onstage

Dates:  July 20 - 23, 2020 10:30 am-12 noon.

Grades: 4th and up

Teacher: Gwen Kandt

Cost: $15

Registration Deadline:  July 15, 2020


One of the more common uses for drama in a ministry setting is to act out a Bible story for an audience. But there is more than one way to tell the same story! In this workshop, we will play with well-known Bible stories and various techniques for putting them on stage, including modernizing the plot and telling the story through monologues. 

Improv Workshops

Dates: June 18, July 9, and August 13, 2020 12:00-1:00 pm

Ages: 12 and up

Instructor: Mike Dannelly

Cost: $5 per workshop or $12 for all 3 workshops


Learn improv in a relaxed environment! If you’ve known the feeling of emptiness on stage, if you’ve struggled with “yes, and . . .,” these workshops are for you. Ignite your love of improvisation through physicality and play. Be fearless and arm yourself with weapons of mass inspiration. Buckle up, get ready to sweat, and hold on tight!


Date:  June 22- 25, - July 1, 2020 10:30 am- 12:00

Grades: 4th and up

Teacher: Gwen Kandt

Cost: $40

Registration Deadline: June 15, 2020


Students will learn the basics of structuring a storyline, creating a scene, writing effective dialogue, and more. A couple of class days (TBD) will be devoted to individual writing conferences with the instructor rather than a group class. Students will be expected to do some individual writing on their own scripts between classes so they have material to bring for workshopping. This class is highly recommended for students interested in submitting a play for CSDC’s Summer 2021 New Play Festival!

Actors will do voice acting and live sound effects for these staged reading radio productions. Each camp will produce a 30-45 minute show with different script(s). CSDC has been keeping the Golden Age of Radio alive since our first radio theatre production in 2006. We at CSDC love these shows, and we love sharing them with new actors, crew, and audiences. Past productions have included episodes of the Lone Ranger, Father Knows Best, Suspense, and more. This summer’s episodes will be chosen after we know how many campers will be participating. We are looking forward to continuing our tradition of bringing our audiences the best of the Golden Age!
