Drama Kids International Announces the Addition of New Franchise Owners 

Drama provider expands to 54 locations in the U.S. due to popularity of program. 

Leesburg, VA , May 7, 2015  — Drama Kids International, the nation’s largest afterschool drama company, recently announced the addition of two new franchise owners in April. After attending the extensive Drama Kids franchise owner training program this summer, both will be providing the Drama Kids’ unique developmental drama classes to children in locations throughout their market areas beginning September 1 st. The new owners are:

Sherry Shannon – Drama Kids of Central DuPage County Illinois; and

Pam Kornfeld – Drama Kids of Birmingham, Bloomfield and Troy Michigan 

“We are excited to have the opportunity to make Drama Kids programs available to children and their parents in these markets” said Drama Kids President, Charlie Kerr.  “We are very selective with regard to the caliber and experience of individuals who are offered the opportunity to become Drama Kids franchise owners.  Sherry and Pam will make a very notable difference in their communities by giving children ages 4-17 the confidence to think big, speak up and play an active role in society.”

Drama Kids uses a very different, developmental curriculum in its program that enables children to learn how to think creatively and confidently express themselves.  These same skills can be the building blocks that help children achieve personally, academically and professionally.  With all the talk today about bullying and low self-esteem, Drama Kids classes meet a great need in our society.

These new franchise owners join a network of more than 50 Drama Kids franchise locations throughout the United States.  Currently Drama Kids has over 10,000 students enrolled in its fun-filled, developmental after-school drama programs.

“We continue to aggressively seek qualified new franchise owners in markets throughout the U.S. and look forward to welcoming many more qualified individuals to the Drama Kids network of franchise owners over the next few months and in the years to come”, said Kerr.

The Benefits of Drama Classes for Children

When you consider drama clubs and classes for children, what conclusions do you draw? Do you think of a room full of confident, extrovert young people with ruthless ambitions for Hollywood or television? Has your own child expressed an interest in the peforming arts and been badgering to go? Have you spotted what you think might be a hidden talent, and can’t bear to see it wasted or do you have a realistic feeling that your child is probably not destined for stardom, but you are wondering whether drama club just might be beneficial in other ways?
