  • Mission

The mission of the CCS Theatre Department is to engage the creation, fall, and redemption of God's world by analyzing, understanding, and then recreating human nature in a way that is perhaps impossible without theatre. We strive to stretch students personally and artistically; to comprehend the values of hard work, respect for other human beings, and reception to constructive criticism; and to learn how to use theatre for God's glory. We hope to educate and serve our community by telling compelling stories by way of personal artistic expression.

Upcoming Performances

Fall Play: The Somewhat True Tale of Robin Hood

Chattanooga Christian School's Theatre Dept. is proud to present "The Somewhat True Tale of Robin Hood" as its Upper School Fall Play. It sure is hard to be humble when you're a swashbuckling, egocentric superhero. but our gallant guy-in-green tries his best as he swaggers through The Somewhat True Tale of Robin Hood, a frantically funny, Monty Pythonesque retelling of the classic. 

In-person tickets are $7, and live-stream tickets are $5. Performances December 3-5.

“The real beauty of theatre is that it is a collaboration of various art forms and the unique people God made us to be. In working toward a theatrical production, all of our abilities are actually enhanced by working together. It is always amazing to see God weave the students' gifts together to create a final work of art—unique and beautiful."
