Drama is a vibrant element of the Coastal Christian High School experience. Students are encouraged to participate in a variety of ways (including acting, lighting, set design, hair and makeup) in the annual spring production.
Plays are chosen that will challenge the students to stretch in their acting ability while maintaining a God-honoring message. A blend of serious drama and comedy allows students to learn acting technique and keeps the audience entertained. CCS plays have been well-received by a variety of audiences.

In 1941, young Ellie O'Brien faces a devastating betrayal by the one she loves most. In the aftermath, she comes to doubt everything she has been raised to believe. If God is real, why would He allow her to suffer so deeply and undeservedly?
But years later, when her granddaughter Cassie faces heartbreak, Ellie is able to use the hard-won lessons of her own youth to help her grandchild see that God is always at work—even in our greatest struggles and trials. He is always good and He always does good. In this moving drama, Ellie and Cassie's lives are interwoven like an elaborate tapestry.
Other plays from Pam will be published in the future!
