Be sure to save the date for our upcoming spring show, Willy Wonka Junior, based on the classic novel by Roald Dahl. The show plays April 15 and 16 at 7 PM and April 17 at 2 PM at the Head Start Theater (1221 Henry Avenue in Beloit, Wisconsin). The kids are already practicing hard for the show and cannot wait to share it with you. Click on the poster for more information.
Also, don’t forget to join us for our Vendor & Craft Fair! We hold this at the Head Start Theater as well, on March 19, from 10 AM to 3 PM. It features something like twenty vendors selling all sorts of wonderful things, plus there’s a bake sale and a lunch meal deal to boot. Click on the poster to the right for more information about that too.
For KFAD’s 27th season, we will be performing Willy Wonka Junior. See below for all the details.
We hope to see you for registration on January 11! We also have a number of other upcoming events:
- Join us at the Beloit Culver’s tomorrow, December 22, for Scoopie Night. Part of the proceeds from 4–8 PM go to benefit KFAD, and we will have KFAD performers there throughout the evening.
- On March 5, the Banding Together event held at the Eclipse Center from 1 PM to Midnight will also partially benefit KFAD. Save the date!
- On March 19, join us for the Dazzling Drama Vendor Fair, from 11 AM – 3 PM at the Head Start Theater. The benefits, once again, go to KFAD.
Now, though, we’re thinking about Christmas and then the New Year. KFAD invites our performers — past, present, and future — to join us for Christmas Caroling to area nursing homes on December 8, 2015.
We will have two practices — be held at the studio, 3 Eclipse Center — to get ready. The schedule is as follows:
- Thursday, December 3 from 4 – 5 p.m.
- Monday, December 7 from 4 – 5 p.m.
Caroling Day: December 8
Meet at the studio at 4 p.m. Change into KFAD sweatshirts and Santa Hats. We will need a few parents to help carpool. Once we know how many kids we have, we can figure out drivers.
When we are done caroling we will go back to the studio for a holiday party! Marge will make barbeque sandwiches and there will be a sign up sheet Thursday for other items like chips, pickles, cookies, cocoa, etc. We hope you can join us!
