At Cornerstone University, we tell artful stories to glorify the Creator.

Theatre presents truths about the complexities of the human condition and of living in a fallen creation that groans for redemption. Here, we believe that we glorify the ultimate Creator when we, in His likeness, create theatre to represent and mirror life. Our productions strive to embrace the artist in every student, foster the growth of the individual and bring to light their creative gifts so they can build lives that matter.

Our productions include comedies, dramas, classics and modern works. Students from all academic disciplines are encouraged to take part in our shows, gaining experience in all aspects of production.
