This fall join us for the premier of a Bethel Conservatory of the Arts original production written by the Class of 2024. Under the direction of Lisa Noroña you are invited to journey back in time with a group of immigrants searching for a hope filled future in America. 

"At the cusp of the 19th century, Ellis Island stands as the doorway to America for hopeful immigrants seeking a better life. Dreams intertwine with uncertainty, and challenges emerge along this path. Amidst these trials, a clash unfolds between a hostile assistant commissioner and compassionate workers as the new arrivals do whatever it takes to get through this gateway. Will a welcoming embrace await those who have chosen to undertake this journey?"

Bethel Conservatory of the Arts

Bethel Conservatory of the Arts exists to train and equip professional actors, dancers, filmmakers, music composers and screenwriters through fully accredited programs. We envision a generation of creative revivalists who know their identity in Christ, perform in the Presence and release the kingdom of God in the Entertainment Industry.


At BCA, two of our core values are to explore both the Kingdom and humanity.  The world and Scripture are filled with characters who are messy and broken. Our aim is never to glorify sin, but, often the stories we tell will show the lost making mistakes. We won’t always get that balance right, but we are committed to trying our best, and to taking creative risks.
