KCKCC Theatre Department

The theatre program helps students with a general interest in theatre to interact with people in the working world. Theatre majors should plan their program with the requirements of their selected four-year college in mind

Students who follow the program are assured performance opportunities each semester during the two-year program. Students may apply directly to the department for a scholarship.

Directors Statement

Welcome to the Department of Theatre at Kansas City Kansas Community College. The Department of Theatre is rooted in the liberal arts tradition.

We offer both an Associate of Arts Degree in Acting and an Associate of General Studies in Theatre Technology and Design.

Our exciting, new program is noted for its professional atmosphere, its comprehensive nature, and its close faculty/student working relationship. In the department you'll have the benefits of a small, close-knit program within the environment of a comprehensive, urban community college with courses taught by some of the best professional actors, designers, and technicians in the Kansas City area.

Theatre students are most likely to succeed when they understand completely the theoretical, historical, and practical elements of the theatre.

Still creepy and kooky, mysterious and kooky, and altogether ooky - all of Charles Addams' beloved characters return in musical form with a new plot line. Wednesday Addams, the ultimate princess of darkness, has grown up and fallen in love with a sweet, smart young man from a respectable family! Since her parents have never met the young man, Wednesday confides in Gomez, her father, and begs him not to tell her mother. Now, Gomez Addams must do something he has never done before ... keep this secret from his beloved wife, Mortica

Everything will change for the whole family one fateful night when the Addams family host a dinner for Wednesday's 'normal' boyfriend and his parents.
