This semester’s show….
The Seussification of Romeo & Juliet
Our Circle Arts K.I.D.s (Klasses In Drama) bring this hilarious take on the Shakespearean story to life – complete with every wacky Dr. Seuss creation imaginable!

How it works…..
•Our instructors teach the basics of theatre for 3 weeks.
•students audition for a role in the show they will perform at the end of the semester.
•Rehearsals are one to two times a week until the week before the performance called “Tech Week”.
•During “Tech Week,” all students will be needed every afternoon for rehearsals.
•The class culminates with a weekend of performances. Friday and Saturday at 7pm and Saturday and Sunday at 2pm.


Though there are only 3 weeks of classes, students continue to learn through the rehearsal process. They are introduced to dance steps learning the names of those steps, and they learn basics of music and harmony. Though classes of 15 students go to a show of 45-50 actors, shows are carefully staged to make sure everyone has their moment to shine.

Students always get to perform in front of a sold-out crowd!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!

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.
