Theatre

It's quite the production...

Lexington Christian Academy has a multi-decade tradition of integrating the visual and performing arts with faith, as is evidenced by the existence of The Cross Worship and Performing Arts Center. We produce full-scale musicals, classic plays, literary adaptations, and original scripts (including cast devised and student-written plays) as a co-curricular enterprise with students playing prominent roles not only on stage but in tech and design capacities as well. Hang around after the show, and join in lively talkback sessions with our students.

While we love a good show here at LCA, we love a good process even more, and we love to reflect on what we're learning about the theatre, the world, ourselves, and our God.

YEAR-AT-A-GLANCE

Theatre Director, Christopher Greco

After I graduated from Brandeis University with an MFA in Playwriting, former headmaster, Barry Koops, invited me to become LCA's first ever dedicated theatre faculty. I eagerly returned in 2013 after the grand opening of the Cross Worship and Performing Arts Center, having served as an arts and worship pastor during the intervening 15 years. While pastoring, I had the privilege of creating an original musical with Canadian worship leader, Brian Doerksen, based on Luke 15 (www.prodigal-god.com). I serve as the Pastor of Worship at Antioch Church of Waltham, and I am also a master's level counselor with a degree from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary.
