Admission to the play is free, but donations collected during the show support the Mount Olivet youth’s summer mission trips. The youth program draws new people to Mount Olivet and is a vital part of our church community. Every year, the youth spend more than 70 hours in rehearsals and performances to raise an average of $20,000 for their summer mission trips. During these trips, our youth learn what it truly means to be the hands and feet of Christ by wielding hammers and a few other tools to improve the lives of the less fortunate.

Past Performances

She Kills Monsters by Qui Nguyen

Performed in association with Keegan Theatre

February 2019



This play captured the power of role-playing fantasy games to catapult us from hum-drum, nerdy lives into worlds of infinite possibilities. Dancing, having fun with swords, and taking on high school mean girls who bully their LGBTQ peers, our heroine learns crucial lessons in courage, family, and fully embracing oneself.
