Encore Theatre Company
“Jesus is our passion, theatre is our obsession.”
Encore Theatre Co. is dedicated to glorifying Jesus Christ through theatre, by offering family-friendly classes and productions, while creating a safe and encouraging community for Central Oregon’s youth.
1 Peter 4:8-11: “Above all, keep loving one another earnestly, since love covers a multitude of sins. Show hospitality to one another without grumbling. As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace: whoever speaks, as one who speaks oracles of God; whoever serves, as one who serves by the strength that God supplies—in order that in everything God may be glorified through Jesus Christ. To him belong glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen.”
Our Core Values:
Focused on Christ… We are committed to being witnesses for Christ backstage and onstage. We encourage discussions about our beliefs, our faith, God, and the Bible, among the entire group.
Creating family-friendly theatre… We strive to produce plays that will be wholesome, appropriate and entertaining for any age. We will also offer acting classes and workshops for the community. We want everyone involved to enjoy all aspects of this experience.
Building meaningful relationships… Theatre draws together a diverse crowd of people, and we strongly believe in creating community among our volunteers, actors, and leaders.
Pushing the limits… We encourage those new to theatre and long-time thespians, to foster their creativity, and to push themselves outside of their comfort zones, so they can develop their acting skills.
A safe and positive environment… We are dedicated to creating a safe environment that is full of encouragement and free of cliques. We desire that all those involved would feel they play a vital role in this incredible group.
Study and Scripture… We will make Bible study and testimonies a core aspect of our ministry. We will host a short Bible study prior to each rehearsal so we can open up discussions about life, Truth, and God, as well as a prayer group to lift up our fellow actors and share each other’s burdens.
