Dock Theater

In support of the mission of Dock Mennonite Academy, the Drama Program will provide opportunities for the school community to experience the art of drama, including its ability to enhance our understanding of the human condition, appreciate literature, develop communication and acting skills, increase self-confidence, build faith, and strengthen community. Varied dramatic productions may entertain, enlighten, and cultivate critical thinking, creativity, and spiritual growth.


In other words, theater is one of the most satisfying and FUN things you can do during your Dock career...give it a try!


“For as long as I can remember, people have told me that I should be a teacher. But last year I made the decision to pursue what I want to do. The girl I was [in junior high] is gone. I am completely different, and I have excelled in the area of theater since leaving Pennfield and coming to Dock. But it is not just about proving I am good enough. It is about proving that I know deep down that this is where God wants me to be, and what He wants me to be doing.”  ~ Elena Trout ('14)

“The real highlight of my senior year, and perhaps the peak of my entire high school experience, came in the form of the fall musical, Crazy For You. I spent the whole summer getting excited for this show as soon as I realized it was a Gershwin show that included some of my favorite Jazz tunes. When the cast list was posted, I found to my delight I had been cast as the lead, Polly Baker, a spunky cowgirl who wanted more than her small Nevada town had to offer. The months that followed were a whirlwind, and the best experience I have ever had. I have never felt more alive than I did on that stage.”                                                                                                               ~ Clara Bush ('14)
