As the week-long arts celebration closes with the annual Pops Concert on March 27, an appreciation and emphasis on the arts continues in several classes, events and groups throughout campus. But with just 32 students studying theatre and 100 music and worship students, campus productions rely on non-majors to round out the performance groups.
The theatre faculty have the opportunity to work with students in their major and students in other majors who have an interest in theatre.

Movie Review: ‘Into the Woods’
When iconic fairy tale characters Cinderella, Jack and the Beanstalk, Little Red Riding Hood, and Rapunzel all find themselves alone in the woods, chaos naturally ensues. Disney’s “Into the Woods,” based off the Broadway musical of the same name, explores what would happen if these classic tales didn’t simply end at “happily ever after.”

Brian Johnson: A Big Heart and a Big Voice
Cedarville University grad Brian Johnson (’12) has made it to the third round – the Knockouts – on NBC’s eighth season of “The Voice,” but there’s more to him than his music.
“Brian almost always had a heart about as big as Cedarville,” said James Phipps, Johnson’s academic advisor and a senior professor of communications at Cedarville. “He just is a people-type person, and he had a heart for people.”
But though his heart’s big, Johnson’s head never swelled as ...
Review: ‘Doubt: A Parable’
Though “Doubt: A Parable” differs greatly from any recent production at Cedarville, opening night was sold out and the intimate and sensitive storyline conveyed excellently.
Senior Simon Yeh started off the performance playing despairing music on the clarinet, lit only by a single light. All eyes were on him, just a few inches away, really, from the audience.
