The Kings Academy Group Photo

A group of our middle and upper school musical theatre students visited The King’s Academy in West Palm Beach on Friday. TKA has a well-renowned musical theatre program, and our students had the privilege of participating in a talkback session with their director David Snyder and their cast, do a workshop with the cast to learn a song and a dance from their current production of Wicked, do a backstage tour of their performing arts facilities, and see their show that evening. It was an incredible and memorable experience for our students, and we look forward to a continued partnership with The King’s Academy.
