The goal of Circle Arts’ K.I.D.s (Klasses in Drama) is to encourage self-discovery and build self-confidence, while teaching the discipline of theatre to 2nd through 9th grade students. Classes are offered during the school year, in both SPRING & FALL. Many of the K.I.D.s “graduates” become members of our touring youth company, The Inner Circle, and also fill roles in our main stage productions.
The first three weeks of each K.I.D.s session consists of instructive classes. The students then schedule their audition for the season's production. Once they are notified of their role, all the classes meet as one group for a review of the script and the calendar. Students are only called when needed for the scenes being rehearsed on any given day. The week of the play performance is called "tech week," and students will be needed every afternoon to rehearse the play in full, culminating in full performances on the weekend, always to a packed house!
To make a payment and reserve your child’s spot in the class, click on Tickets and look for Klasses In Drama in the list of offerings. If you’ve filled out the Registration form, then you’re done and we’ll see you the first day of class. If you prefer not to fill information out on line, then print out the registration and medical forms to bring with you the first day of class. You won’t have to come to registration unless you’d like to look at the theatre.
Our students and families love to give back to the community, and one way Circle Arts K.I.D.s does that is by collecting donations at each performance for a specific organization. For our production of Honk Jr., we collected and donated approximately 60 lbs. of pet food for the Humane Society of the New Braunfels Area. In connection with our production of Seussical Jr., we collected and donated nearly 100 children's books for the Bavarian Manor Community Room. For our upcoming production of Annie Jr., we will be collecting new socks and underwear and new/gently-used school bags for the New Braunfels Foster Closet.
Tuition Fees: $175 for classes and training and $25 for scripts and materials. Total cost for the semester is $200.
