KC Melting Pot Theatre
KC Melting Pot Theatre in Kansas City
MeltingPot KC Inc. was founded in 2013 by Harvey Williams. Fueled by the purpose of staging one of his original works he produced the work independently. The experience propelled him to broaden his vision to include other under-represented works by local theatre artists and offer opportunities to the vast local talent in the Kansas City area.
By late 2014 MeltingPot KC was the sole “Anchor” company at JOBT. In 2016 a new partner, Dr. Nicole Hodges Persley, joined the company and expanded the mission to include historical black plays, increase community engagement, and expand the education and Playwright in Residence program. In 2017 KC MeltingPot Theatre became a 501(c)(3) and changed its name to KC Melting Pot Theatre Productions. KCMPT is currently in its 6th Season.
