In keeping with the vision of the church we see our productions as a means of connecting with each other. The Drama Ministry at Oak Grove is open to all members of the church community, as well as those beyond our doors. We see drama, dance and music as gifts endowed by our Creator and, as such, we offer these back to Him as we rehearse and perform together. Always bearing in mind that family life and obligations are of primary importance, we work to keep rehearsal time productive and fun, but not lengthy.
It is our intention to present a variety of works that are stimulating, thought-provoking, professional and appropriate for all members of our community.

THEATRE SUMMER CAMP
Every summer, the Drama ministry joins with Theatre Works of GA to offer two weeks of performance camp for children age 4 – 8th grade. Campers learn the fundamentals of stage acting through interactive play, games, exercises and hands-on activities that stimulate creativity and physical expression. Each week focuses on a special topic, such as Shakespeare for Young Actors, Performing in Musical Theatre, The Art of Clowning or Learning to Perform Commedia.
Opportunities abound at Oak Grove for all ages and stages. We encourage you to “Come Play with Us!”
