Kansas City Public Theatre provides access to the arts through year-round theatre entertainment free of charge to the public. This mission is carried out in two activities: first, by producing aesthetically and ideologically diverse new works and reimagined classics that reflect the unique history and concerns of the Kansas City community; and second, to cultivate civic-minded artists, audiences, and citizens through community-based devised theatre workshops.


By providing quality theatre productions free of charge to the public, Kansas City Public Theatre envisions theatre as an essential cultural good that should be fully accessible to all members of the community.
