The HHCA Theater Department is dedicated to creating a collaborative learning environment with exceptional education in the dramatic arts. We aim to elicit creative self-expression, critical thinking, confidence, and artistry through our theatre course offerings, main stage productions and other performance occasions. Students are given opportunities to showcase the talents our Lord has blessed them with as performers, directors, designers, musicians and stage technicians. HHCA is also committed to producing superior shows that will continue to delight, entertain, and educate audiences. In recent years, HHCA has brought to stage shows such as The Sound of Music, Tarzan, Willy Wonka Jr., Guys and Dolls, and Beauty and the Beast to name a few.

HHCA Theater also presents a unique opportunity for students to become responsible citizens. In order to have a satisfying and successful theatrical performance, every ensemble member must actively participate as a team member. Every student must practice respect of himself, the other ensemble members, and the performance environment. Every student must meet his commitment to himself and the other performers. Every student must develop the skills and knowledge necessary to participate successfully within the artistic and social framework of the theatrical ensemble. Every student must strive for excellence and take pride not only in his individual work, but also in the cooperative production of the ensemble.
