The Living Room is an unconventional theatre space in the Crossroads Arts District in Kansas City, Missouri, founded in 2010 by Rusty Sneary and Shawnna Journagan. Originally an auto showroom, the two story building was transformed into a performance venue via the blood, sweat, passion and dedication of Sneary, Journagan and their friends and family in the KC community.
Over the past seven years, The Living Room has produced over 50 shows, as well as dozens of staged readings and special theatrical events. In that time, we have organically evolved our mission statement toward a focus on new works written, performed, and realized by local and expatriate Kansas City artists.
We believe that the talent being born and bred in this city is immense, and should be given a proper place to grow. In that spirit, we are very excited to announce that our 8th season is comprised entirely of world premieres. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, and accept donations year-round via our donation page. Your contribution of any amount is tax deductible and deeply appreciated.
In addition to housing multiple playing spaces, The Living Room is a frequent venue for concerts, private events, and weddings.
