All students are invited to learn the fundamentals and enhance their vocal technique to sing praise at Lake Country! The choir performs in two major concerts per year, with smaller groups formed for other special occasions. The choir also takes a tour to spread the praise of the Lord to more people. Join in to the group that fits your schedule and style: Concert Choir, Lightning Choir, Broadway Choir, Vocal Ensemble.
We are proud to be one of the few Christian theatre programs in the greater Milwaukee area. We encourage students to grow in their faith and better define their Christian worldview through script discussions and understanding character development. Students who have interest in developing skills or utilizing their God-given talents are encouraged to get involved in one of the many ways: acting, performing, singing, dancing, playing instruments, set creative design, set construction, stage management, make-up and costume design, technology support (lights/cameras/sound), and tickets & concessions.

This festival is an amazing opportunity for students to experience the world of theatre on a larger scale. This is a week-long immersion experience with workshops presented by theatre and broadway professionals, individual and group performances, programs for technical theatre students, and opportunities to audition for college admission and scholarships. Thousands of high schoolers across the world attend ITF every summer. We bring a group of students to this festival every two-years and are proud to be one of the few Christian theatre programs in attendance.
As an alumnus of LCL, Mr. Timm returns to lead the program he helped start as a student. After graduating from LCL in 2005, he attended Concordia University in Chicago, where he experienced some of the best theatre venues and companies in the country before earning a Bachelor of Arts in Theatre Education. After graduating from CUC, Mr. Timm stayed to direct their theatre ministry group, Fish Out of Water and continue to assist with their mainstage productions until moving back to WI in 2013 to teach at LCL. Mr. Timm was awarded the Inspirational Theatre Educator Award from the international Educational Theatre Association in 2016. He currently resides in Waukesha with his wife, Erin, and their children Molly and Owen.
“LCL’s theatre program is truly one of a kind. Producing three shows per year at a school of our size is no easy task, but we all work very hard to constantly improve and tell the best stories we can. Our close-knit group pours their hearts into every production and many of our alumni continue to stay involved after they graduate, so it feels like being a big family. There’s a real love here—for theatre, for each other, and for our LORD.”
