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 evaluating a return to the stage in 2021 on an ongoing basis. Please check back for updates.

To support Kansas City Actors Theatre during this “intermission” period, please DONATE.

Thank you for your patience.
