25 Years of JCCC’s Performing Arts Series

Nestled in the heart of Johnson County, KS, is what Emily Behrmann calls a “hidden gem” and Kansas City’s “best-kept secret.”

Review: Mary Poppins at Starlight

With top-notch choreography, sets, and special effects (this show is full of magical surprises), you would never guess that Mary Poppins was produced by Starlight in just three weeks. Fans of the film will enjoy favorite songs performed to new choreography and story-telling and the addition of new songs that are fun and catchy. Our favorite scenes were Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious and Step in Time, both well choreographed. And, as mentioned before - be sure to stay for the end! The finale magic is worth the price of admission and had my children beaming all the way home.

Review: Cinderella at Starlight

Beautifully portraying the classic fairytale we all know and love and adding depth for new audiences, this is a summer must see for Kansas City families!

Review: A Year with Frog & Toad

The Coterie took this newer Broadway Musical and made it their own. With Seth Jones playing Frog, Steven Eubank as Toad, and a talented supporting cast of neighboring animals, the show takes children on an imaginative world of very small animals. With mushrooms for houses and leaves for beds, the sets are creative and vibrant.

Review: The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane at The Coterie

Review: An Iliad

The Poet and The Musician had just take us on an incredible journey. The performances are masterful and nearly flawless in a heart-wrenching and unforgettable performance.

Review: The Nutcracker by the Kansas City Ballet

Tchaikovsky's unforgettable music tells the tale with excitement and whimsy - a story enjoyed by generations. We recommend making it a part of your holiday traditions!

Madrigal Dinner at Calvary Bible College

Madrigal Dinners are set in the sixteenth century, with the performers in period attire, a period meal served, and the setting decorated to represent the royal court. The entire evening is a unique and festive way to celebrate the holiday with families. The musical performances were outstanding, the meal was terrific, and the setting was a fun way to step back in time and celebrate the holidays and the redemption story.
