Christian Drama Ministry
My name is Deanna Storfie and I am Acting Up! Drama, situated in the Lethbridge area of Southern Alberta, Canada. I research, write and perform one-person Christian dramas meant to inspire the Church. My passion is to bring the gospel alive by researching, writing and dramatizing the TRUE stories of ordinary people who served an extraordinary God. I love what I do and I especially enjoy the people I meet who serve God so tirelessly in their communities.
I have been married to my hubby, Colin, for over thirty years now. We have four beautiful grown
daughters (one is away at university) and four grandchildren. When I was younger I toured with a Christian repertory theater group out of Los Angeles, called Covenant Players. This is where I was trained and where I learned how effective drama is in communicating the gospel. I have been acting up now for over 35 years because of them!
I was born and raised in Prince George, BC, and moved to Lethbridge in 1984. I have been involved in my local church and Christian community which has helped to strengthen and ground me in my faith. I have used my dramatic talents within this same Christian community and started Acting Up! Drama in 2006. As a result God has steadily expanded my influence. I have performed in churches, schools, my local prison, at camps, retreats, conferences, kid’s clubs and even people’s living rooms…wherever there are people ready to be touched by God through story.
For over ten years I have used my one-person dramas to bring Christ to a local prison outreach called WOW (Women of Worth) with a group of four other women from different churches. Our purpose is to see Christ and his Word transform lives from the inside out. I have been a deacon in my church for over ten years and am a member of the Lethbridge Evangelical Ministerial Association.
My knowledge and experience in drama and my love of a good story has led me to develop plays that have benefited adults, youth, and children. Whether it is watching my one-person dramas, participating in my interactive plays or drama workshops I hope to make you LAUGH, CRY and PRAY.
“Deanna Storfie has a gift for communicating the gospel through drama by illustrating the lives of past heroes of the faith. She seeks to present the pith of their contribution to Christianity, and by doing so allows others to follow in their footsteps. As her pastor, I heartily endorse her ministry. To those who are considering embracing her, you will not be disappointed.” Pastor Bob Butler, King of Kings Fellowship, Lethbridge, AB (my pastor)
