  • Village Christian School is proud to welcome Kendall Lloyd as its new Director of High School Theatre Arts.

    Lloyd, who has served as a substitute teacher at the school since November and took over full-time teaching duties in March, will now head into the new season and school year with the full-time role officially.

    “The feedback from students has been overwhelmingly positive,” said Director of Fine Arts Natalie Taylor. “The students have said, ‘He’s amazing and has so much knowledge and experience.’ ‘He's a cool dad who knows how to relate to kids.’ ‘We love working with him.’ I’m thrilled to have Kendall on our team. I’m confident that High School Theatre Arts will continue to thrive under his leadership."

    Lloyd, who earned his Master of Fine Arts from the University of Iowa, has worked in regional theatre in Maine, Iowa, New York, and California. Most recently, he appeared in Thom Babbes’ production of “The Human Comedy” at Actor’s Co-Op, where he got to know the former VCS Director of Theatre Arts.

    “My hope is to take the tradition that has been built here and expand it—different types of plays, different types of theatre—and to build and stretch acting techniques, helping students understand there are a lot of different ways to become a good actor,” Lloyd said. “There are a lot of methods, and no one of them is good for everybody. Each has strengths, and each has weaknesses. I can’t wait to see what works for them as we move forward.”

    Heading into the 2023-2024 school year, Lloyd will teach Theatre and Honors Theatre classes at VCS, while directing an exciting slate of shows headlined by “Beauty and the Beast” in the Kendall Pavilion and “Little Shop of Horrors” in the Auditorium.

    "We are blessed to have someone with the experience, talent, and faith of Mr. Lloyd to lead our award-winning Theater Arts program,” said Head of School Tom Konjoyan. “We are excited for the professional-level learning and performance experience our students will receive."

    He is married to Elementary Teacher Meagan Lloyd, and he expects their three children, Simon (11), Grace (8), and Samuel (6) to attend VCS in the fall.

    Added Lloyd, “I’ve never seen a school care more about their theatre program than Village does. For me, that has been super refreshing and encouraging. I’m excited for these students’ love for theatre to grow in new ways. There is quite a legacy here already, and I want to see it grow. I’m excited to be part of it.”
