A Special Note: The final performances will be the culmination of many weeks' hard work by the performers, staff, and volunteers. Attendance is a very important aspect of this program as the performers rely on each other throughout the process, building their knowledge and skills together. We understand that sickness may occur, but it is understood that barring unforeseen illness or emergency all performers will attend every required rehearsal.
The Kettleworks Players is a fantastic opportunity for young performers to truly become part of a theatre family and receive a high quality arts education. Each week, company members will be given an excellent, in-depth performing arts education through regular training & rehearsals, workshops, and TWO virtual productions during the Fall semester.
A special offer for Company Members
We have found that many performers in our productions have a desire to take their training to a deeper level. Personal training with individual attention helps performers to achieve this goal, and we at KPA firmly believe that private lessons in Acting and/or Voice are the perfect supplement for those performers who wish to continue growth. With this in mind, Fall 2020 members of The Kettleworks Players will receive a 10% discount on Private/Semi-Private lessons for the 2020 school year. You can discover more about lessons HERE.
How does a virtual musical work?
We have received many questions about how it is possible to create amazing theatre on a virtual platform.
Through professional training sessions and many months of experience working through virtual productions, we have learned to incorporate effective techniques for teaching, rehearsing, and performing online. We will hold a brief parent meeting at the start of training to help our company families learn first-hand what is involved.
We encourage you to take a look below to see what magic can happen! This unique year has opened up all kinds of new opportunities for performers and we can't wait to share them with you!
