UpsideDown Productions – Drama Team Member
Hello, we’re called UpsideDown Productions. We’re a group of people who use the arts to share the gospel of Jesus Christ. We are currently seeking new faces to join our travelling drama team.
Do you have a desire to share the love of Jesus Christ with others? Do you like to act? Can you sing or play an instrument? If you answered yes to the first question and any of the others we’d like to hear from you!
How it Works:
There are two tours of four months. September until December or January until May. We usually follow the college school year, starting after labour day and finishing early May, with one extended break at Christmas. You are welcome to come for one or both tours.
What the Mission Trip Will Be Like:
Four months on the road, right across Canada and into the United States. You’ll spend the first three to four weeks at our training facility in rural Manitoba, Canada, learning the basics of drama and practicing two plays – a Bible story and a missionary biography.
After that, you’ll be on the road, performing, teaching and serving in a variety of places. You’ll travel right across Canada (usually B.C. to Quebec) and through the States (usually New York to Montana). We use drama as a tool to get into many places that are otherwise hard to reach – schools, soup kitchens, prisons and every kind of church. You can expect to perform and interact with every age group and social class. You’ll probably share your testimony or a devotional, but we’ll help you get ready for that!
We stay in people’s homes as we travel, coordinated by local churches. Get ready to meet new friends and be a blessing in this way!
What We Do:
We aren’t limited to drama. We do service projects, we focus on building relationships and we learn about the Gospel and how to communicate it more effectively. Drama provides the open door, and then there are an unlimited number of opportunities to bless, encourage and evangelize.
We work very closely with local churches across Canada as well as life-long missionaries, especially those working with Canada’s Native peoples. We want to be supportive of the work that is already going on, and provide long-term connections for those we meet with. Many of our performances serve as a bridge between a missionary (or mission agency) and an area they have not yet been able to set up long-term work. Other times, we are doing evangelism in a place a church is often connected to but has difficulty drawing a crowd (such as a senior’s home or prison).
Participant Information & Requirements:
Participant Age: 18 Years and Older.
