The award-winning theatre program at Charlotte Christian School has a rich tradition of excellence on the stage, including North Carolina Theatre Conference (NCTC) state titles. Middle and upper school students have won individual and group honors at theatre competitions including Christians in Theatre Arts (CITA), Shakespeare Recitation Competitions, the Southeastern Theatre Conference, and the Wells Fargo Blumey Awards (winning Best Show for Oklahoma! in 2013).
At Charlotte Christian, theatre students develop an extensive knowledge of theatre history, acting, directing, playwriting, improvisation, technical directing, and stage management in a hands-on learning environment that allows them an outlet to glorify God while preparing them to impact the culture for Christ. There is a lower school musical in the spring open to students in fourth and fifth grade. Middle and upper school students each have one musical to try out for each school year. The upper school spring musical also competes in the Wells Fargo Blumey Awards.
