Music & Theatre Newsletter: May 2023

Happy May APA families!! As we near our spring performances and the end of our current session, we are already planning ahead for next year. At the end of every spring session, we send out a survey after all of our performances are over. This is a great way for you to leave us any feedback. We love to hear everything… good, bad, etc. It is great to hear about things you love, so we know to keep doing them, and it is crucial we hear about things you wish we would change. We personally read every survey and share them with our staff. The ultimate goal is to make APA better for our families every year! We appreciate you taking the time to let us know your thoughts.  

We know that many questions pop up at this time of year, so please do not hesitate to call, email, or stop in! If texting is your preferred method, please opt-in by texting “APA” to 414-240-8458. After you have opted in, feel free to text us your questions. We are here to help!


Our preferred method for registration is using your APA portal so you can complete everything in full.  Most of our Summer classes are 6-weeks long, but we also have some 3-day Dance Camp options (select dates in JUNE & July), 4-week Adult Yoga, and “The Little Mermaid Jr.” musical. Register early, so there’s less chance of your class being full, or canceled due to low enrollment. We will start to cancel classes with low enrollment by mid-June, so make sure to register early as our schedule could change.

Spring Recital Info!

Recital Dates: Please note that our spring music recital  will be held on Saturday, June 3rd at the Franklin Saber Center. Our recitals include multiple acts, with each act lasting about 1.5 hours. Exact performance times will be emailed by May 8th, BUT please plan ahead now and keep this date open on your calendars. To make this process a lot easier, we are not accepting time requests. 

Spring Music Recital Ticket Sale Days: Tickets will go on sale on Monday, May 15th at 1pm (central time). To purchase visit  

Do you have siblings in different recitals?  Because of the inconvenience, APA will offer families who have siblings in different recital acts, 4 free tickets to your second show time. We will put a credit in your APA account for the value of 4 free tickets ($40) to deduct off future tuition. APA has over 250 musicians performing with multiple siblings so it can be difficult to schedule all siblings together. Please email us if your siblings are not in the same show so we can verify and add the credit to your account
