Spencer Theatre | University of Missouri-Kansas City


A World Premiere


BETWEEN THE LINES is the story of seventeen year old Delilah McPhee, whose life is turned upside down by her parents’ divorce. Forced to move to a new town and start a different school, Delilah finds herself escaping into fiction, developing a literary crush on a handsome prince whose circumstances really… speak to her. This empowering new musical based on the bestselling book by Jodi Picoult & Samantha van Leer asks: what happens when the line between fiction and fantasy becomes blurred with reality?

<h3>Fences</h3>

Friday, October 13, 2017 – Sunday, November 12, 2017

Copaken Stage | H&R Block Headquarters


The winner of the 1987 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and the Tony Award for Best Play that same year, Fences is set in 1950s Pittsburgh against the backdrop of a rapidly changing America. Perhaps the most highly-regarded of Wilson’s soaring ten-play cycle, it tells the gripping story of an African-American father and son and the hopes and dreams to which they desperately cling. Powerful and poetic, Fences is a true American classic.

Complete with lively musical numbers, ornate costumes, and dashing stagecraft, Dickens’ classic tale of hope and redemption continues to remind us what’s really worth celebrating – at the holidays, or any time.

A World Premiere


It’s July 1977 and the South Bronx is HOT -- from a heat wave, from this new thing that would come to be known as “hip-hop,” and from the number of fires burning throughout the borough. WELCOME TO FEAR CITY takes a jarring, yet hopeful and funny, look at a community trying to get by in the midst of crime, apathy, poverty, and a whole new art form that’s about to electrify the world.
