The purpose of the LAH Drama Department is to provide opportunities in classes, stage productions, and other performances in order to teach the students presentation skills that will enable them to be effective, lifelong communicators of the message of the Kingdom of God.
The Drama Department will promote activities that teach acting skills through memorization, public speaking, self-expression, knowledge of sets, props, and sound equipment, posture, poise, and voice projection. Students will experience teamwork, responsibility, commitment, and wholesome fun. Drama strives to present productions that provide an uplifting, wholesome, and moral message for audiences that may deal with issues society faces and give alternative solutions, minister for the Kingdom of God, promote the idea of homeschooling, and showcase the abilities and talents of homeschool students.
The Drama Department exists because of volunteers contributing time, energy, talent, and monetary resources to the effort. Cooperation in working in a group, commitment, dependability, and good attitudes are required by all participants to make a production successful. In order to participate in the Drama production, a parent from each family must commit to serve in a volunteer position. In addition, a refundable deposit is required per student at auditions. This is normally fairly easy to earn back by selling tickets, ads, and helping with fundraisers.

Spring 2022 Play Information
What do Cleopatra, Blackbeard and Lizzy Borden have in common? Well, they’re all part of a hysterically historical comedic romp through a wacky wax museum.
The Lebanon Area Homeschool Drama Troupe Presents:
Night At The Wax Museum will be performed on March 31 & April 01, 2022 at 7:00 PM in the Cowan Civic Center Theatre.
School’s out for summer, but not for six unlucky students who don’t know much about history — they have to re-take the class in summer school. First year teacher Heather Fairchild has arranged for them to help her two aunts set up a new wax museum as a class project. Though the students’ eyes glaze over with boredom, there’s a twinkle in the wax figures’ eyes when a mysterious incantation from the back of Cleopatra’s bracelet brings them to life! King Henry VIII finds himself smitten with Cleopatra, making his queen, Anne Boleyn, furious. If she can just not lose her head, John Adams is there to serve as her divorce attorney! When Butch Cassidy, the Sundance Kid, Blackbeard and a bevy of lady pirates show up, everybody’s out for one thing — treasure! Supposedly, there’s a mighty valuable one hidden in the museum! It’s a wild goose chase to find it, with a greedy museum landlord and her bumbling son joining in the mad search. And why is Lizzie Borden lurking in the shadows, since the aunts say they never had a wax figure of her?! Join the hilarious fun as treasure-hungry outlaws, pirates and royalty mount the greatest siege since Vicksburg!
Wax historical in this mad-cap comedy adventure where the magic of history comes alive... literally!
