ST. CHARLES—The newly named Fox Valley Rep Performing Arts Academy (previously Noble Fool in 2010) invites aspiring local youth who are ages 3 to 19 to a Spring Open House and Free Workshop Event on Saturday, March 12, from 1 to 4 p.m. on the Mainstage Theater at Pheasant Run Resort, 4051 E. Main St., St. Charles.
The open house is designed for interested children and their parents to come and learn about the academy, meet fellow students and parents, and try out a mini-workshop with fellow attendees. Each workshop will include a short performance from past students.
“By having an open house, we’re creating an environment that’s inviting and fun, where current students can talk to new students, and fellow parents can get to know each other and ask questions,” said Education Manager Tracy Whiteside. “This free event is a great way to just try it out and see if it’s right for you.”
Each hour consists of an introduction from Tracy Whiteside, a showcase performance from current FVR students, and attendee participation with sing-a-longs, games and dance routines. Attendees are able to come at anytime between 1 to 4 p.m. to participate or just watch. Parents are invited to observe as well. All new attendees will receive a $25 gift certificate to use towards a spring enrollment (one per household).
