The Coterie Theatre, named "One of the Five Best Theaters for Young Audiences" in the U.S. by TIME magazine, provides unique theatre experiences for families and young audiences. The company is nationally recognized for its one-of-a-kind programming that features a year-round season of live plays and musicals on the company's mainstage, for which individual, group, and season passes are available. The Coterie offers acting and theatre classes year-round for PreK-12th grades at multiple locations around Kansas City, including an extensive summer program of classes and performance camps. The company also has several community outreach programs that include in-school curriculum-based workshops, theatre productions that tour to schools and community venues, a free award-winning touring presentation that educates teens about STD prevention, and a teen playwriting program that gives voice to emerging young writers. As a not-for-profit professional theatre company, The Coterie seeks to educate, entertain, and challenge audiences by opening lines of communication between races, sexes, and generations.
