Theatre for Young America has served the Kansas City metropolitan area since 1974, presenting live, professional theater to young audiences. Each play has connections to curriculum topics, and TYA provides a specially prepared Leaders' Guide with background information and classroom activities related to the play. Students attending TYA plays also participate in a question-and-answer session with the actors, and schools may book an Outreach Workshop conducted on school site. TYA performances are now at Union Station on H&R Block City Stage. We also offer a full complement of drama classes for children 3 through 18, taught by theatre professionals at Wonderscope Children's Museum in Shawnee, KS.
