Kettle Moraine Lutheran High School

An Artistic Reminder of God's Blessings

A colorful new mural now brightens a formerly blank wall in the KML kitchen thanks to the artistic talents of KML senior Ashley Bischel. Ashley hopes that those viewing it are reminded not only of how God blesses us with food, but of how he cares and provides for us in every aspect of our lives.

KML Winter Drama - Game of Tiaras

Game of Tiaras
Poster design by Andrea Adams

What do you get when you cross the randomness of Monty Python with the calamity of Shakespeare's King Lear, while using familiar fairy tale characters? Join us for the tale of an aging king of a magical kingdom who decides to split his empire between his three daughters, Cinderella, Belle, and the Snow Queen (who in no way resembles a copyrighted character). Terrible tragedy ensues – terrible, hilarious tragedy!  Gut-wrenching plot twists, soul-numbing despair, and a growing body count combine to keep you laughing to the bitter end.

Performances are Friday, February 17, at 7:00 PM; Saturday, February 18, at 7:00 PM; and Sunday, February 19, at 2:00 PM. All performances will take place in the KML Performing Arts Center. General admission tickets will be sold at the door starting 45 minutes before each performance. Tickets are $8 for adults and $6 for students (K-12) and seniors (65+).
