The musical theatre program at Cornerstone Christian School began as a result of the vision and passion of Principal Dr. George Falk in 1997. He was determined to give every student an opportunity to be involved in the performing arts through acting, music, and technical theatre. Dr. Falk emphasized the spirit of community through all-school involvement, skill development, self-improvement, service through the use of one’s gifts, and enjoyment through a commitment to excellence.
Between 1997 and 2001, the productions were presented in Hillcrest Church. The 2002 and 2003 shows were moved to the newly constructed Cornerstone Christian School gymnasium. The Mae Wilson Theatre in the Moose Jaw Cultural Centre opened in 2004 and has been “home” to Cornerstone’s annual musical productions ever since. It’s an honour to share our production with the community of Moose Jaw in such a beautiful facility!
The current adult production team endeavours to honour Dr. Falk’s vision and memory by inviting elementary students to participate alongside high school students. Cornerstone students have the opportunity to be involved in ten Broadway-style musicals and six or more one act plays during their school years. Cornerstone graduates have gone on to study film, acting, music, and dance. Some have gone on to work in television, advertising, professional stage management, and arts education while others continue to enjoy and contribute to the arts through participation in community theatre, churches, and schools.
