Cornerstone Youth Theatre is a Christian afterschool theater arts training organization for students ages 6 through 18.
Instilling confidence and character
through theatre arts opportunity and education;
reflecting Christ in Judeo-Christian values.
Cornerstone Youth Theatre’s Goals:
1. Building leadership skills.
2. Developing a sense of community and fellowship.
3. Providing positive, Godly role models for students.
4. Training children in the performing arts.
CORNERSTONE STUDIO CLASSES
Cornerstone offers studio style theater arts classes for students ages 6-18. Sessions run from September through May.
CORNERSTONE PRODUCTION COMPANY MUSICALS
Our association produces at least one Broadway-style musical for the community each session. For example, musicals for the 2023-24 Central Alberta season are: Christmas Spectacular in December 2023 , Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat in March 2024 , and Welcome to the Jungle Book June of 2024.
Our association is a family oriented organization dedicated to providing entertaining activities which can involve the entire family. As such, at least one parent or guardian of each student cast in the production must serve on both a pre-show and a show-week Family Committee. Without the support of family, we could not produce high-quality community shows. Parents are the backbone of our association!
How does Cornerstone reflect Christ in Judeo Christian values?
In the area of culture referred to as THEATRE, we see Yahweh God as CREATOR. This is the glory of Yahweh’s creativity coming through humanity—through His children who are made in the image of their Creator. When we see the glory of God’s creativity coming through others, it was meant to remind us that He loves us enough to give us a glory of our own. When your true glory causes others to be inspired and entertained, you’re expressing an aspect of God as Creator. The TRUTH that we will learn to display in THEATER is: GOD WANTS US TO ENJOY LIFE AND CREATIVITY.
Our theater association is not a church. It is a youth theater company that is committed to training students with curriculum that adheres to Cornerstone's Mission and Goals, and to put on quality theater with a Judeo-Christian world view. Our staff and board look past denominational lines and see students as students
theater association strongly believes in setting high standards - mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually.
Statement of Beliefs
We believe the Bible to be the only inspired, infallible and authoritative Word of God.
We believe that there is one God eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son
We believe in the deity of the Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, and His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through the shedding of His blood, in His bodily resurrection on the third day, and His ascension to the right hand of the Father.
We believe that salvation is by grace alone through faith, apart from works, by the merit of the shed blood of Christ.
We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost: they that are saved unto the resurrection of life, and they that are lost unto the resurrection of eternal separation from God.
