New Session Starts Soon!

KFAD starts its new session on January 14, 2010, from 4-6 PM. If you’re thinking of joining us, the time to act is now.

We’ve made some changes with this session. First of all, you must reserve your space in the session before we begin, as we have limited space. Also, Marge will be casting on the first day.

Our actors will be performing two different plays: The Legend of Sleepy Hollow and Three Billy Goats Gruff. The cast will be divided based on experience and age. The younger group will perform Three Billy Goats Gruff, and the older (seasoned) children will perform The Legend of Sleepy Hollow.

The tuition price remains the same: $100.00 per child, or $150.00 for the discounted family rate. To reserve your spot, call Marge Austin at 608-774-4140.

Once again Space is limited! Please e-mail myself or contact Marge at 774-4140 to reserve your child A.S.A.P. Call soon!
