Dear Students and Parents! 50673203_10102475702355646_1416886019910795264_o

We would like to let you know about plans for our 2019-2020 Season.

Our Artistic Director, Ekaterina Vetrov, is planning to take 3 months in the Fall to do intense theatre training, practicum and work at Saint-Petersburg, Russia. Upon her return, we are preparing to take work of Once Upon a Kingdom Theatre to a new level and explore new creative directions that will incorporate the latest discoveries in international theatre practices.

Meanwhile, all classes will be postponed until January 2020. Auditions (for new students) to our Junior class and pre-registration interviews with our Senior students will happen in December 2019.

Our theatre does not stop its work for this period, we just go into so much needed planning and reorganizing phase. So please, feel free to contact us at any time with your thoughts, ideas, suggestions, projects and news!

Sending you our warmest regards!
Board of Directors: Ekaterina Vetrov, Alexander Vetrov, Maria Bugrova
