Congratulations to a group of US students who have been nominated for Halo Awards this year. The Halo Awards are presented by the Seven Angels Theatre in Waterbury, CT and honor high school students' achievements in all aspects of theatre.
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.
The PAC theater and courtyard came alive on Friday, May 11, for the first King Music Festival, which welcomed over 14 bands from area schools, including five from King, and culminated with the headline act, The Funky Dawgz Brass Band.
Congratulations to our MS students on their fantastic performance of 'James and the Giant Peach' last weekend. Students worked extremely hard and showcased their talents on the stage and on the crew.
The students start the school year with a detailed rubric according to their chosen theme and tailored to their skills and objectives. This year's participants examined myth, chaos, memory, acceptance, escapism, wonder and illusions drawing on their own life experiences, knowledge, curiosity and hopes.
King is honored to be chosen to participate in the American High School Theatre Festival in 2019 for the second time as we were selected to perform in 2016. King is one of only 40 schools across the country selected to perform.
In March when Grade 4 student Ryan Shih stepped onto the stage at Lincoln Center to perform Chopin's Waltz in A Minor, he kept his cool. Despite being just 10 years-old, this was not his first time in this spotlight competing in the Concert Festival International Competition so he knew what to expect.
