Two core values at KCA are co-learning and creative expression. The KCA Theater Department embraces these values with its philosophy of focusing on the process of creating rather than showing off a slick product. While we take great pride in our productions, the emphasis is discovering how scripts, artistic concepts, technical designs, and performances are created, developed, and influenced by each other. Individual commitment, accountability, sincerity, and communication are more highly-prized than a dazzling smile. At KCA, students will develop an appreciation for the reasons behind choices that end up on the page and on the stage.
Students learn by challenging themselves in a safe space, supporting each other, being supported, and being brave enough to try something new.
