The Academy Clowns are talented, hard-working performers from the 6th grade at Huntsville City Schools’ fine arts magnet school, the Academy for Academics and Arts. Students audition to become a part of the Academy Clowns, have class four days a week and minimal after school rehearsals.
The Academy Clowns give students a chance to do more than sing and dance before an audience. The personal commitment given by a student to be a part of the group, to audition, come to all rehearsals, to care for costumes and learn theatrical make-up techniques, and to perform publicly teaches lifelong skills that transfer to academic success and career opportunities.
