KMC Onstage offers fun for the whole family, whether you want to be on the stage showing your gifts, or in the audience watching the talent in front of you. KMC Onstage is located on Kleber Kaserne Bldg. 3232, which also houses the Java Café.
KMC Onstage offers acting classes for homeschoolers and public schoolers. Classes are not just for kids, there are many adult classes as well! They also offer free ‘workshops’ and give out monologues or group readings and critiques actors. It is a wonderful experience even if you do not wish to participate in a play or musical. Most auditions are open and will give you a cold reading to perform when you arrive. Some plays require actors to be 18 and older to audition and/or watch. Children under 3 years old are not allowed to attend any plays or musicals unless otherwise stated. Every year a Tournament of the Plays called Toppers is held between bases all over Europe. Each base can enter one play and one musical per year.
You can also find out about upcoming KMC Onstage plays in the Kaiserslautern American newspaper that you can get free on base or online. If you participate in a play or class, it will count as high school credit.
