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.

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.
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.
