The King's Academy's "Take A Seat" allows generous supporters of the Dedicated to Excellence Campaign to put their name or the name of a loved one on a beautifully engraved nameplate on a chair in the school's new Center for the Performing Arts. With just a few months until the opening of the Center, now is the time to join more than 150 patrons who will be recognized on a seat and on TKA's Dedicated to Excellence donor wall in the Esther B. O'Keeffe Lobby.
The King's Academy Theatre Company provides a Conservatory-level experience for students gifted in Vocal, Instrumental, Theater, Dance, and Visual Arts. Each year, performances garner national and even international attention for the quality and production value. Graduates have gone on to the highest level of continuing education at school such as NYU, Marymount Manhattan, Savannah College of Art and Design, and the New School. Professionally, alumni perform on Broadway (Tess Soltau as Glinda in "Wicked"), with Yanni (Lauren Jelencovich is Principal Vocalist), in the Commandant' Own USMC Drum and Bugle Corps ( Sgt. Phil Jones), and as Assistant Director of the hit TV show "The Middle" (DJ Carter).
TKA Fine Arts students are eagerly awaiting the opening of the Center for Performing Arts, scheduled for Fall of 2016.
