SHINE is a Christian Performing Arts program serving all ages of the community. Shine provides a place where the whole family can participate together in some capacity ranging from on stage to the many behind the scene tasks .including set buildinyg, costuming, sound & tech, advertising, graphic design, etc. Students not only increase their acting ability but also develop discipline, confidence, integrity and team work. Plans are underway for the Fall 2018 production of the hilarious, heartwarming Christmas classic, “The Best Christmas Pageant Ever.” 

Shine’s Fall 2018 Session & Audition Information For “The BEST Christmas Pageant EVER!”

In this hilarious Christmas classic, a couple struggling to put on a church Christmas pageant is faced with casting the Herdman kids–probably the most inventively awful kids in history. You won’t believe the mayhem – and the fun – when the Herdmans collide with the Christmas story head on!

Lundquist Family Photo for Bio
Christie Lundquist has been on stage since she was a little girl when her formal dramatic training began at 6 years old as part of a Home School Choir and Drama Group in Placerville, CA and has continually participated in theatre ever since.
After a family move to Denair, she attended a production of “Cinderella” in 1998 at the Gaslight Theatre. Christie’s passion and excitement for the theatre grew and she immediately participated in productions at the Gaslight. Some of her favorite roles through the years have been Anne, in “Belles on Their Toes” and the White Witch, in “Narnia”.
She was soon given the opportunity to expand her experience by directing “Little Women” in 2001 at the Gaslight. With the success of the production, she went on to direct the Gaslight’s children’s musical theatre groups, Starmites and Minimites for over ten years! 
Now, with this amazing ministry opportunity, as director of SHINE, Christie brings her expertise and experience to provide quality training in the arts. She has a passion for producing wholesome family entertainment that not only strengthens Christian values in each performer, but also touches everyone involved, including the audience.
When not working in the arts, Christie enjoys being home with her husband Craig and homeschooling their four wonderful kids, Madisen (12yrs), Cali (10yrs), Noah (9yrs) & Tommy (7yrs).
