A storyteller, accompanied by a live musician, unravels Mary Shelley’s iconic 200-year-old science fiction tale as a haunting and heartbreaking cautionary tale like none other. That this tale is as important today as it was then, speaks to the human condition. “We tell stories because they teach us we’re not alone in our misery, or our fear – or in our joy. And while this story is fictional, it comes from a place of real pain, real loneliness, and real confusion over what it means to be alive.”
The health and safety of our patrons, staff and artists has been and always will be of the utmost concern at KCRep. We have been closely monitoring the regional response to the evolving situation with COVID-19 and find ourselves at a critical moment in our history.
With this comes the difficult task of announcing that our opening ofFrankenstein: A Ghost Story by Kyle Hatley currently scheduled for this evening at 8pm has been cancelled as well as its scheduled run.
We will be able to process refunds for ticket holders of Frankenstein: A Ghost Story however, we would like our audience members and subscribers with tickets to consider converting their purchase to a donation to our organization. With so many unknowns about the lasting effects of this pandemic, these sorts of efforts will bolster KCRep and our potential to continue sharing enchanting and entertaining stories with you in the future. Please call our box office at 816-235-2700 with any questions.
We are also cancelling Legacy Land by Stacey Rose as well as its scheduled run.
We are deeply saddened we will not be able to share their incredible work with all of you, our KCRep family. We truly appreciate playwrights Kyle Hatley and Stacey Rose, directors Joanie Schultz and Logan Vaughn and their amazing and inspiring teams of actors and designers.
In regards to our upcoming production of Noises Off!, we continue to monitor the situation and will keep you informed on any adjustments to its current schedule.
We thank you for your continued support of KCRep during this time and throughout the year. We look forward to continuing to celebrate you and the rest of our arts community through the magic of live theatre.
This show is performed with no intermission. Please be aware that this performance utilizes strobe and smoke effects.
