Theater Arts

Theater arts play a large role in the arts program at King School.

The theater arts program performs comedies, musicals and dramas every year. For two summers in a row (2019, 2018), our upper school theater arts team was invited to perform in the prestigious Edinburgh Festival Fringe in Scotland.

Theater Arts From Grade 5 - High School

In our Lower School, all grade 5 students are involved in the end of the year musical. 

The Middle School puts on a play in the fall, and a musical in the spring, which students can choose to be involved in. 

Like the Middle school, the Upper School performs a play in the fall and a musical in the Spring. 

While students can start taking a general theater arts courses in middle school, many of the drama courses and specific skills-building classes are available as part of our upper school curriculum offerings.

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.
