KCRep for All brings the magic of live theatre to you! Presenting free world-class theatre throughout Kansas City, KCRep for All is our community tour. You’ll see the same stories from our stages come to life in community centers, public libraries, and senior centers throughout our region. Performing the same script as seen on our mainstages, the show is re-staged and re-imagined to be performed for you in your neighborhood.
KCRep for All breaks down economic and geographic barriers and makes our theatre walls more permeable as we travel across Kansas City to meet people where they are. This program is inspired by The Old Globe’s Globe for All program in San Diego.
2022-23: the ripple, the wave that carried me home
A moving exploration of a family’s response to injustice and a daughter’s reckoning with her political inheritance.
Janice’s parents are prominent activists fighting for the integration of public swimming pools in 1960s Kansas. As injustice penetrates the warm bubble of her childhood, Janice grows apart from her family and starts a new life far away. When she receives a call asking her to speak at a ceremony honoring her father, she must decide whether she’s ready to reckon with her political inheritance and a past she has tried to forget. A deeply moving story about justice, legacy, memory and the ultimate challenge of forgiveness.
