Abdul Majeed Shoman Auditorium

Auditorium

The magnificent Abdul Majeed Shoman Auditorium serves not just the students but the community as a whole. This state-of-the-art facility seats 700 people and is the perfect space for concerts, theatrical performances and dance recitals. In addition to school events, the auditorium serves as a gathering place for weekly meetings between the headmaster and the entire school. 

Over the past few years, the Shoman Auditorium has hosted guests such as the Chicago Trio, CityDance Ensemble, the Apple Hill String Quartet, the Johnny Rodgers Band, the United States and United Kingdom ambassadors to Jordan and prominent entrepreneurs who addressed students as part of the Career Speaker Series, to name just a few. 

The auditorium stage has also served as the venue for showcasing student talents in various theatrical productions. Over the years, performances by the King's Players have included William Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream, Noel Coward's Private Lives, Samuel Beckett's Waiting for Godot, Timberlake Wertenbaker's Our Country's Good, Arthur Miller's The Crucible, Molière's The Miser, Celeste Raspanti's I Never Saw Another Butterfly and William Gibson's The Miracle Worker, most of which were premiered here in Jordan at King's for the first time. Numerous musical performances put on by the King's Singers and other student musical groups have also been showcased on stage. 

King's Academy public performances have not been limited to the boundaries of the campus. Faculty and students have also performed in the Kingdom at large through initiatives such as the Living Room Project (a series of dance performances held in the homes of Jordanian families throughout the country) and the exciting coming together of the Academy's string ensemble with members of the Amman Symphony Orchestra for a breathtaking concert at the Al-Hussein Cultural Center in Amman.
