Rosebud School of the Arts

This summer, nine students from Rosebud School of the Arts will perform alongside resident actors and professional artists from elsewhere in Canada in two block-buster shows on the Rosebud Theatre stage. Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat will play for 82 shows to a projected audience of 14,000, while the critically acclaimed Amish Project plays for 34 shows on the more intimate Studio Stage.

Anna Dalgleish, a third-year student from Delta, BC, is ready to develop her acting skills in The Amish Project, an all-woman show about the tragic 2006 Amish school house shooting.

“This is an opportunity to come together as women to tell an utterly human story, beautiful and broken, rife with anguish, and ultimately bathed in forgiveness,” says Dalgleish.

Fourth year student Cailtyn O’Connor from Calgary, Alberta, will showcase her dancing and singing talent as Naphtali and understudy to the Narrator, the largest role in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s iconic musical.

“I’m excited to work closely with actors from Calgary whose work I’ve witnessed over the last few years. It will be refreshing to watch the processes of these professionals, while developing my own practice,” says O’Connor.

Speaking of Rosebud’s investment in emerging performers, Nathan Schmidt, head of Rosebud’s acting programme, sums up the value of working in real life theatre. “Nothing will teach you like an audience,” says Schmidt. “Students aren’t just up there for 4 shows, but for 80 shows! The young actors live on the deck in a real way, not just as an exercise.”

To discover whether you are ready for a life in the arts, Rosebud invites you to a scout week to explore the school, the theatre, the arts village, and yourself in the demanding and rewarding work of theatre. Scout weeks are offered throughout the year, including the summer months.

Prairie College

At Prairie College our students study the entire Bible. We cover the whole canon in all of our four-year degrees and offer a one-year Encounter program that covers much of the Old and New Testament.  Here is what two of our students have to say about their experiences:

“My journey at Prairie has transformed my walk with God.  Having a community to stand beside me as we look into God’s work together is incredible and should never be taken for granted.  Being able to study the historical books with Carmen has changed my outlook on the Old Testament.  Something I found dry and boring has now become filled with wonder as she has opened my eyes to new things.”

“Overall I came here with little understanding of Scripture.  I do not come from a Christian background, and the exposure to Scripture I’ve received has helped me understand, not only the biblical message, but also the character and nature of God.”

Come and join us this fall by applying at prairie.edu/admissions.  Check out Prairie College on Youtube as well.

 

Kaleo, integrated leadership training

Experience an integrated leadership training approach! A fusion of five different components all seamlessly working together: Leadership Training, Learning and Doing, Community, Outdoor Adventures, and Academics.

The years right after high school are proven to be an extremely formative and pivotal time in a young person’s life. It is a time when young adults find themselves leaving home for the first time and learning in a whole new way about their faith and life.

Kaléo is Greek for ‘I Call’ and Hawaiian for ‘voice’. Our program provides a very unique opportunity to listen to God’s voice and discover His call on your life at a a very important time in one’s life.

Are you an aspiring leader looking for a year that will lay a strong foundation for the next part of your life, whether it’s more school, work, ministry, travel or unknown? Are you interested in doing your first year of post-secondary education in a unique setting before heading off to a typical college campus?

A solid foundation of faith, character and leadership abilities is very valuable to have as a stepping point to whatever is next in life. The Kaléo program has proven to provide that foundation of faith as students study, serve, are stretched in outdoor adventures and ministry opportunities and focus on godly leadership.

If you become one of our students, we are committed to helping you build a strong foundation for life – no matter what’s next!

There is no typical weekly schedule for the Kaléo program! The five components of the program seamlessly work together in a very intentional schedule. Some weeks you are in class, while others you are on an outdoor adventure, on a missions trip, doing ministry in a church or at camp, or working on course assignments. The program schedule is put together in a holistic approach with every component supporting one another.

Each year of the Kaléo program is a little different. An excellent place to look at what student life looks like at Qwanoes is by reading a past year’s program blog: http://kaleo2018.blogspot.ca
