Where we go from here

Following the public health crisis surrounding the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19) in early March, Kansas City Actors Theatre canceled its remaining run of “St. Nicholas” and postponed all future productions. We thank everyone for all their love and support as we handle the specifics of these delays day-by-day.
At this time, we are planning on returning to the stage with Four Children, a world premiere play, starting October 7th through 24th. All audience members, staff and volunteers are required to be vaccinated. Our full list of COVID-19 Protocols can be found: HERE.

We will be announcing a full return to the stage with Season 18 starting May of 2022. Check back for updates on Season 18.

Thank you for your patience and continued support of Kansas City Actors Theatre.

Great actors. Smart plays.

Artistically managed by a veteran collective of theatre artists, the Kansas City Actors Theatre presents thought-provoking plays that explore, celebrate, and share what it is to be human, with sensitivity, intelligence, and humor. We nurture our local artistic community by employing the finest talents of Kansas City’s diverse professional theatre community, which in turn makes Kansas City a more vibrant, vital place to live and work.

Nearly all income goes to pay the best local actors, designers and technicians, so that the art of theatre can flourish in Kansas City.
