    Harvey in the fall
    Spring musical TBD - graduated almost all my male singers/dancers. Looking for a show with two strong female leads, one or two male leads. Any suggestions are appreciated. Am looking at Sideshow, but not convinced.

    Our Fall production is "The Winter's Tale" set during the Harlem Renaissance.

    Our Spring production is "Shrek".  We are super excited for this one.  We've confirmed costumes, backdrops, added some new sound equipment (always fun), and are ready to get started.

    I hope everyone has a creative and restful summer!

    We're doing:
    Fall play: The Curious Savage
    Spring Musical: Head Over Heals
    Spring play: TBA (looking at Good Boys and True, or maybe Trap.) Just a side note: For our Spring plays, we have the audience up on stage essentially turning it in to an intimate black box feel.

    Puffs: For Young Wizards One Act Edition for fall and still unsure for Musical. We've lost so much money since in pandemic, im afraid to make a choice and not be able to produce it in the way I would need to to make money. In a perfect world,'I'm doing Shrek or Mary Poppins to make money back, otherwise I really don't know!

    It is Molière's 400th birthday this year and Kansas City's theatre community is encouraging our professional and educational institutions to produce Molière!
    -Our fall play will be Molière's one act: "The Precious Young Ladies" followed up by a commissioned contemporary one act "The Precious Woke Young Men." Playwright, Alli Jordan.
    - Mamma Mia for winter musical
    -slated for spring play is Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime.
    * I would love to hear feedback from schools that have produced it recently. We would approach the beautiful story through  research, utmost respect and looking to engage with a local organization that serves children on the autistic spectrum. Thoughts on casting a non neuro-divergent student actor in the neuro-divergent role of Christopher? Positive or negative. I believe the production could encourage deeper empathy and understanding for those living on the spectrum. But I am curious if academic productions have experienced other responses that should be equally considered. Thank you in advance, if you have insight to share!
