KFAD’s Fall Season Starts Now

15391727113_1994e82605_oThe fall session of KFAD will begin August 24th at 4:00 p.m. at the KFAD Studio, which is located behind the library in an old bank building.  The address is 3 Eclipse Center.  The musical this fall will be Babes in Toyland.  Performance dates are November 20, 21 and 22.   In the fall we also have a fundraising dinner, which will be on September 20 from 4 – 7:30 p.m.  Our theme is the Roaring 20’s and will include performances by the kids and professional musicians.

Rehearsals are Mondays and Thursdays from 4 – 6 p.m.  We start at the studio and by mid-October will start rehearsing on stage at Head Start, where we perform.

The cost is $110.00 per student ($95.00 for additional kids) and includes vocal, acting, dance instruction, as well as costumes for the show.  Registration paperwork can be found here and will also be available on Monday at the studio.

We do have other fundraising activities including Elder-Beerman coupon books and occasional Culver’s Scoopie Nights.  We encourage and need parental help, especially during show week.  When the show is over on Sunday, parents also help strike the set. You can find a parent survey form here, and it will also be available on Monday at the studio.

We look forward to starting up our fall season!  Please feel free to share this message with anyone you know who may be interested in KFAD.  The program is open to kids age 7–18 in the stateline area.
