Kansas Academy of Theatrical Arts
Launching youth into their future!
 
WELCOME to 2017, the 27TH SEASON OF
 KATA SUMMER THEATRE!!!

Welcome to EIGHT WEEKS of theatre in our neighborhood!

Workshops #1, #2, #3 , #4,#5 & #6- $70 per student 
 
Multi-family discounts: $60 for each student after the first. 
Scholarships and parent volunteer trades available 
 
 Six weeks of  themed activities that include acting, singing, dance, art and crafts, stagecraft, outdoor play, social and team building skills, reading, writing, and math for fun, AND getting on stage putting ALL of those skills into a production!  Each ONE of the first 5 workshops is a complete unit. This allows students to miss a week and not miss the fun. We then TEAM UP  in week 6 (new comers for BACK STAGE HELP welcome in week 6) and learn how to put on a first class production! Students ARE divided into age appropriate classes. 
 FREE LUNCH from Harvester's Kids Cafe!
ALL of our workshops have a written curriculum that is available for parents to see! 
 Spaces EACH week are limited so that EACH child receives the training and ATTENTION they need from KATA's  staff .

OUR 6 week 
workshop theme
 for summer 2017 is 
"READIN', RAPPIN' & RHYTHMATIC"
