Congratulations to all our US students who participated in the production of "The Importance of Being Earnest" last weekend. "It is a very challenging play for young actors given that pronunciation, diction, vocal energy, and the appropriate inflection of operative words is imperative," Mark Silence, Performing Arts Faculty.
At King School, our students are exposed to many forms of creative expression and encouraged to pursue an artistic passion or discover a new one.
King’s Performing Arts program which includes theater arts and music, offers students the opportunity to make personal and cultural discoveries by participating in a creative, disciplined and collaborative process. Through a structured communal process, students develop self-confidence, perseverance, imagination, reflective thinking, and intuition.
The Visual Arts program at the King School stresses the importance of original creative thinking and personal artistic expression. Students learn to use and manipulate a wide range of media and techniques through assignments that are age appropriate yet challenging.
King’s stunning state-of-the-art Performing Arts Center (PAC) is an enviable setting for these creative pursuits. The lobby of the (PAC) doubles as extraordinary exhibition space for students, professional artists, and alumni.
Congratulations to five King students who auditioned on November 16 and were accepted to perform in the Western Regional Music Festival. The Festival takes place January 17-18, 2020 at Darien High School. The festival is the brainchild of the Connecticut Music Educators Association (CMEA). The CMEA's mission is to "provide programs and activities for professional educators, students and future music educators striving to enhance the quality of music education for all children" and the CMEA launched its first All-Connecticut Festival in 1936.
Whether they were on stage, on crew, or manning the sound board, our students had the opportunity to make personal and cultural discoveries by participating in the creative, disciplined and collaborative process.
Congratulations to Jordan Kulick '19 and Chloe Simonte '19 on their acceptances to two prestigious programs: music theatre and voice performance. Jordan will attend Elon University and Chloe will attend Bucknell University.
Congratulations to our US students who have been nominated for a Halo award. King received 14 nominations, up from 8 last year! The Annual High School Halo Awards honors high school students' achievements in all aspects of theatre. Over 60 high schools from across the State of Connecticut are participating in the 16th Annual Halo Awards this year!
Alonna Christy '19 shares her inspiration behind her piece, which will be showcased at the Colloquium. Visual Art and Athletics at King have empowered Alonna to become more vocal and involved. "Art and athletics provide a safe space for me - it makes me feel comfortable, be more vocal, and come out of my shell," adds Alonna.
