At New Life, we love God, love people, and make disciples. In the Dramatic Arts ministry, we believe it’s our mission to use those God-given gifts to bring real-life application to God’s word. Everyone has been impacted by a theater production, movie, or song and it’s our goal to empower creatives to bring the teachings of scripture to life, in a new and meaningful way.
The Dramatic Arts are not limited to the actors on the stage or the production team. We are an all-encompassing ministry. We welcome anyone who can work well with a team in a high intensity, detail-oriented, environment. Whether you are a seasoned professional, a newbie, renewing a passion you thought was gone, or just love theater, we all work together toward a common goal.
God has given each of us unique and individual gifts; Through these gifts we are given an incredible opportunity to impact people on every level imaginable.
Dramatic Arts FAQ
Short answer, yes. For some productions, we open up the band and/or drama auditions to the wider community. But it is important to note that for other productions we reserve the right to limit auditions to existing Dramatic Arts Ministry members.
Each production is unique and will have its own age-range for parts. Some shows are adult-only casts, while others invite children of all ages to audition. To check, click on the production you are interested in auditioning for to find the age restrictions.
- Because we work directly with children, everyone will be subjected to a background check.
- All band members and actors must commit to ALL rehearsals and ALL shows. If you know you cannot attend a rehearsal, please discuss it prior to auditions.
- Actors and band members must arrive 10 – 15 minutes early to each rehearsal for pre-rehearsal prep and pray in.
- Actors and band members must be aware they are representing our ministry and agree to do so in a professional manner publicly and on social media.
- Please keep the details of the show confidential.
We reserve the right to meet with and discuss the removal of any volunteer, actor
and/or band member.
