As you know, it has been an unprecedented few months for all of us here in Kansas City in the wake of COVID-19. The performing arts industry worldwide faces an unforeseeable future, and there are many unknowns about how to move forward convening large groups and enjoying live theatre. With that, we want to let you know that major efforts are underway to create an exciting NEW 2020-2021 season, different from the 2020-2021 season which was announced in February 2020. This decision was based on a number of factors including guidance from union partners and social distancing requirements, and current information about the COVID-19 pandemic and its impact.
While there is some heartache in this change — we are also discovering exciting opportunities to serve and engage our KC community in new and meaningful ways. And so, all of us at KCRep are creating a new season that is an inventive, revelatory, and entertaining mix of small-scale live performance, outdoor family friendly events, and digital theatre experiences. We aspire to lift up our community during the pandemic and once on the other side — be there to help bring us back together to connect, heal and celebrate. In the coming weeks we will share details about our redesigned season created specifically for this extraordinary moment and for our beloved KC subscribers and community. More information about our COVID-19 response is available on our FAQ page.
Information for Current Ticketholders
If you had already purchased tickets to our previously-announced 20/21 programming, your subscription funds are being held “on-account” for you, so that you can use them for tickets to one of our reimagined experiences this year, or towards your subscription to our 21/22 season. We simply ask that you use those funds no later than June 4, 2021. Please note that your chosen seats are safe, and will be available again for our next subscription season.
As you can imagine, cancelling our subscription season has put an additional financial hardship on KCRep. If you are able, we would be grateful if you would consider a donation to KCRep. Those dollars will help us sustain in the short term, and will aide in helping us continue to produce life-changing live theatre for our community when we are able.
We are grateful for your support of great Kansas City theatre, and look forward to reconvening with you when it is safe.
