Season Subscriptions now available for Season 16!

Due to the ongoing health crisis and the extension of restrictions and stay-at-home orders, we’ve made the decision to postpone the previously-scheduled productions in August and September.
We are currently carefully monitoring whether we can return to the stage in early 2021. Our Artistic Committee is already reviewing alternative plays that would make it easier to implement the social distancing that may be required event then. We expect to be able to provide an update in mid-October regarding the possibility of a revised production return.
In the meantime, the best way to support Kansas City Actors Theatre and help secure our return is to DONATE.
Know that Kansas City Actors Theatre will weather this storm, and we look forward to seeing you and sharing profound, heart-warming, and affecting stories and unsurpassed performances once again.
Current subscribers need take no action at this time. By default we will hold existing subscription tickets until we are able to safely produce theatre again. For all ticket related inquiries or concerns, contact the Central Ticket Office (CTO) at 816-235-6222 or

The Cake

by Bekah Brunstetter
Location: City Stage at Union Station
Director: Missy Koonce

When an upbeat bakery owner in North Carolina (played by company member Jan Rogge) is asked to bake a cake for the wedding of a woman she helped raise, she finds herself reconsidering her views when she discovers the other half of the couple is also a woman. “The Cake” is a funny, thoughtful, and heartfelt story that lightheartedly, but respectfully considers a potentially divisive issue featuring a story that focuses on building bridges.

Featuring: Jan Rogge. Further cast to be announced.

Jesus Hopped the 'A' Train

by Stephen Adly Guirgis
Location: City Stage at Union Station
Director: Brian Paulette

Written by Pulitzer Prize-winning Stephen Adly Guirgis, this wild and surreal play follows Angel Cruz’s irreverent journey though spirituality and the justice system. In turns crude and rapturous, this story features a diverse lineup of sympathetic characters and was nominated for the Olivier Award for Best New Play when it first premiered in 2002.

Featuring: To be announced.

The Dresser

by Ronald Harwood
Location: City Stage at Union Station
Director: Darren Sextro

An elegy to a by-gone era of British theater where esteemed actors ruled the stage with near impunity, “The Dresser” finds an aging actor as he fights through a challenging performance of “King Lear” with the help of his longtime theatrical dresser. This play, written by the Oscar-winning Ronald Harwood, will deliver powerhouse performances.

Featuring: John Rensenhouse, Phil Fiorini, and Carla Noack.


by Harold Pinter
Location: City Stage at Union Station
Director: Cinnamon Schultz

This award-winning play tracing the reverse chronology of a 7-year affair is a classic of characterization and emotion from Harold Pinter, a favorite of KCAT’s audiences and a playwright who has been hailed as one of the most influential modern British dramatists. Following our “Pinter Project” summer nine seasons ago, we look forward to returning to the Nobel Prize-winning Pinter.

Featuring: To be announced.

The Christians

by Lucas Hnath
Location: St. Paul’s Episcopal Church
Director: Gary Heisserer & John Rensenhouse

A pastor delivers a sermon that shakes the faith of the congregation he has shepherded from storefront to mega-church in KCAT’s return to environmental theater, where a play is performed in the actual environment the story takes place. Hnath’s play relateably captures a contemplation on faith in America and the human and real consequences of choices based in spirituality. This thoughtful show, presented complete with a choir in St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, will be a singular experience.

Featuring: To be announced.
