Kensington Arts Theatre is happy to announce that KAT Junior is coming back this summer after a brief hiatus! The all-inclusive program, which is designed to educate and help further the artistic and creative pursuits of young adults within the theatrical craft, will be led by Ryan Burke. Ryan is a fan favorite here at KAT and has also been seen professionally on the Ford’s Theatre stage as well as NextStop Theatre Company in Herndon.
Audition Song: 16-32 bars of an upbeat song (not from the show)
Audition Dates: June 7 & 8 (Tue/Wed) | Callbacks: June 11 (Saturday)
Location: Kensington Town Hall / Armory
Program Duration: June 14 – August 14 | Tuition: $750 (only if cast)
Rehearsals: Tue/Thu, with a Theatre 101 class on Wednesdays
In place of some of the Theatre 101 classes, there will be Master Classes with professional actors in the DC area, including Kevin McCallister (more to be announced on May 9th). During the two month process we will also be rehearsing for Disney’s Beauty and the Beast JR, which will go up the weekend of August 14.
This way the students can access and use the lessons we learn in class in their performances. It is an intensive program that will take place during weeknights (except for performances) and centers around putting up a quality production and understanding how to achieve this.
Due to our late entry into this summer’s activities, we have decided to postpone KAT Junior’s return to 2017, either the spring or the summer. Stay tuned for more information!
