OPAS

Oaks Performing Arts Society

The Oaks Performing Arts Society (OPAS) is a parent community dedicated to supporting the Performing Arts Department at Oaks Christian School. Much like a booster club for the arts, OPAS helps finance continued excellence in band, choir, dance, orchestra and theatre. In addition, OPAS funds assist in securing additional opportunities for our students to perform. This is crucial given the exponential growth in the department; this year over half of our student body will participate in one or more performing arts disciplines. 

What have we accomplished?

During our first two years, we have already funded a part-time adminis­trative assistant for the department, dance teachers to enhance the dance and theatre programs, instruments for the middle school, mirrors and drapes for the high school Curtis black box theatre, a new lighting system for the dance room, a wardrobe closet for the middle school, wireless microphones for the Gosnell Stage, a set of prop chairs for theatre productions, a professional grade steamer for costumes,  an acoustic cloud system for the Bedrosian Pavilion, a flat screen for the piano Pro Tools lab, special funding for the middle school worship team,  acoustic guitars for the high school guitar classes and recycling bins for the Bedrosian Pavilion.

OPAS has also established a committed board of directors, created an OPAS membership newsletter, held performing arts camps during the summers of 2011 and 2012, created and sold Oaks Christian performing arts rehearsal wear, spearheaded a high school wardrobe project, hosted member receptions  and sold concessions and flowers at performances and productions.
