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.
2023-24: Nina Simone: Four Women
Described as “riveting, relevant and oh so real” (Broadway World), this deeply personal play with music imagines how the iconic chanteuse gave voice to countless Black women fighting to overcome stereotypes and racism.
Nina Simone: Four Women uses the framework of one of her most blistering songs, “Four Women”, to look at an artist and the women around her as their journey leads them down a path of discovery and healing. This play with music includes some of Nina Simone’s most popular Civil Rights anthems such as “Mississippi Goddam,” “Go Limp,” and “Young, Gifted, and Black” to look at an artist and the women around her as their journey leads them down a path of discovery and healing.
