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.

Not to be confused with the Broadway musical and film of Dreamgirls, our production, written by Elmer Rice, is set in 1945. The central character, Georgina Allerton, is bright, intelligent and college educated. She co-owns a bookstore with her friend, Claire. She has even written a book. In spite of all this, Georgina spends a great deal of her waking hours daydreaming of the life she feels she should be living.  A little like Walter Mitty before her and a role model for the Ally McBeal character that succeeds her, Georgina lives her life in and out of reality. Only in this case, she manages it all in one day.

 A wonderful romantic comedy featuring music by Bing Crosby, Nat King Cole, Hoagy Carmicheal and many more.
