***For Immediate Release***
In our 6th season, Kansas City Public Theatre is working to re-frame the ongoing narrative that theatre audiences aren’t interested in new work. With so many in the theatre industry calling for change, there’s not a better time to show how theatre can invest in community.
Our vision for this season: to RADICALLY focus on the voices of our community. That’s right…it’s ALL NEW WORK and ALL LOCAL PLAYWRIGHTS!!! We’re even more excited to announce that due to the sheer number of talented playwrights who submitted for this season, on top of our regular Mainstage and Theatre Lab programming, we’re adding a new program: The Playwright’s Roundtable, a forum for playwrights to collaborate, network, get feedback on their work, and most importantly, strengthen our community of theatre creators in Kansas City.
Learn more about all of the exciting things we have coming up at kcpublictheatre.org
All events are FREE at the door.
