The new school year is here! We are excited that you have chosen a theater class or are joining our Klein Forest Theater Club and would like to welcome you. We have an exciting year of productions and drama club events planned! The more you are involved, the better our productions and drama club events will be. There are opportunities for everyone that wants to be involved in our department. We have acting opportunities in our Mainstage Show, Thespian Showcase, Musical, One-Act Play Competition, Student-Directs and Encore. If you prefer to work behind the scenes or you just want to be involved in the productions in some way, we have various crews that are essential to the realization of our productions. Student leaders have the opportunity to become Designers and Crew Heads. You can join lighting, sound, set construction, costumes, props, publicity or stage management.
We are thrilled to announce that we will be adding two new teachers to our wonderful KF Theater family this year! Walter Baker is our newest addition and he brings a wealth of theatrical experience to Klein Forest. He has worked in theatre for over 30 years on both the technical side and working as a performer and director. He holds a Master’s Degree in Directing from Purdue University and will serve as Klein Forest’s Technical Director. In addition to leading our advanced tech classes, he will also be directing this year’s fall play Picasso at Lapin Agile and our One-Act Play in the spring that we will bring to the UIL competition. We are thrilled to welcome Mr. Baker to our staff.
In addition, Klein Forest Theater wishes to welcome Mrs. Autumn Palm as our third theater teacher. She brings a wealth of experience to our department as an actor/performer, costume designer and organizational guru. Mrs. Palm will be working closely with the KF Theater Booster club. We are thrilled to have her on our team.
The Theater club is open to anyone who enjoys theater whether they are in a theater class or not. We will hold a meeting once a month. These meetings will keep you up-to-date on what is happening in the department and will also give details about our drama club events. We will also host an event every month, to interact with the members and enjoy to company of the club. There is a 20$ due to become a member of the club. You must pay the fee in order to participate in any of the organized events. Our upcoming drama club event is a WaterPalooza event being held on September 1st. This event is open to all Klein Forest Students regardless of whether or not you have joined Theater Club. Future events will require Theater Club Membership to participate.
We look forward to a fantastic year at Klein Forest and know that this will be our most successful school year ever! If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me via email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
