The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe Creative
DirectorChelsea St. John Wade
Chelsea St. John Wade is ecstatic to be back in the theater after nearly two years. This is her seventh year teaching at Veritas Christian Academy and her thirteenth production as director with Theatre Veritas. A performer herself at heart, she loves guiding the students through their own transformations and character developments. Chelsea studied performing arts at the Nevada Conservatory Theatre at the University of Nevada Las Vegas and The Southern Appalachian Repertory Theater in Mars Hill, NC. She graduated from Mars Hill University with a Bachelor's of Fine Arts. She has performed in numerous plays and musicals at local WNC theaters. She'd like to thank God for his sovereignty and peace that surpasses all understanding, her patient husband who supports her love for theater, and her sweet mama who watched her precious Lincoln many, many hours to help make this production possible. May God bless you and move you with this symbolic story.
