Family Education for Christ

Family Education for Christ Youth Theatre Ensemble

The Family Education for Christ Youth Theater Ensemble was founded in 2016 by Christi Mancha, who desired to give homeschooled students an authentic stage experience. 

The Youth Theatre Ensemble exemplifies an ensemble experience, with students and parents working together in unity and cooperation to bring the play to the audience. Students study stagecraft, theatre terminology, set design and construction, costume design, lighting, character development, improvisation, and production.

The Youth Theatre Ensemble has staged eight productions with a focus on classical literature favorites, including “A Christmas Carol” and “The Lion, the Witch & the Wardrobe.”
