Kids On Stage Programs
The Kids On Stage organization is multi-faceted, offering a variety of programs year-round. With a wide variety of schedules, there is something for everyone!
The KOS Academy
The KOS Academy is a place to learn and grow. Productions & Skill Labs held in this series are open to everyone regardless of experience. For productions, auditions are still held, but everyone receives a role.
Debuting in the Fall of 2023, Broadway KIDS Academy is just for our 3-8 year olds! Rehearsal time will be focused on building foundational skills in drama, music, and dance through hands on games, ensemble-building activities, and rehearsal for a Broadway KIDS production (age-appropriate adaptations that are thirty minutes in length). The first production is 101 Dalmatians KIDS.
Broadway KIDS Academy is offered on a rotating basis in the fall & spring along with being offered in the summer as a summer camp production.
Our Rising Star Academy was designed as a place for our youngest stars to shine. Built for ages 8-12, cast members rehearse and perform a Broadway JR production (age-appropriate adaptations that are one hour in length) for friends, family, and the public while building skills in drama, music, and dance. Past productions include Disney’s Moana JR, Shrek JR, and Disney’s Frozen JR, just to name a few!
Rising Star Academy is offered on a rotating basis in the fall & spring along with being offered in the summer as a summer camp production.
Triple Threat Academy is for our 12-21 year olds (age is sometimes adjusted depending on the show) to rehearse, learn, and perform in a space that is rigorous, professional, and supportive. Cast members work to rehearse and perform Full Length or One-Act Versions of hit Broadway musicals while practicing skills in dance, music, and drama. Previous shows include The SpongeBob Musical and Shrek: The Broadway Musical.
Triple Threat Academy is offered on a rotating basis in the fall & spring along with being offered in the summer as a summer camp production. The next Triple Threat Academy production will be Spring 2024.
Skills Lab is a leveled musical theater education program for currently enrolled or previous KOS cast members. Labs are delivered in sessions throughout the year and focus on drama, music, and dance through the lens of a Broadway JR show. Sessions of Skills Lab do not culminate in a final performance.
The KOS Skills Lab are offered year-round. Check the KOS Skills tab to get involved!
The Next Level
Programs in "The Next Level" are more selective and reserved for those students looking for a highly professional space to master their craft. These programs are audition only and the standard academy no-cut policy does not apply.
