What is KATS?

KATS Historical Music Theater is an award-winning, highly motivating, hands-on learning program providing classes for homeschoolers beginning with students who are already reading and continuing through 8th grade.

Elementary (grades 2-5) meets separately with different classes during the morning and afternoon. Middle School (grades 6-8) attend classes tailored for them. Students will develop theater skills through puppetry, stage games, and drama productions.

Subjects include:

Focus for 2023-2024 KATS Program: Ancient History

This year, through weekly rehearsal, students will learn the scripts for plays featuring ancient history people and events, such as:

Queen Esther (Persia)
King Midas and the Golden Touch (Greece)
Secrets on the Silk Road (Byzantine Empire to China)

Middle School will read about the journeys of Marco Polo while writing a script about his exploits in the 1200’s. At Christmas, they will perform “The Christmas Truce” featuring an event that happened in the trenches of WW1. In the Spring, students will perform the play they wrote about Marco Polo to different schools and their families.
