Mission Statement

The Coterie exists to provide professional classic and contemporary theatre, which challenges the audience and artist alike, and to provide educational, dramatic outreach programs in the community. We seek to open lines of communication between races, sexes and generations by redefining traditional children's theatre to include families and diverse audiences.

Description

The Coterie, a professional Equity theatre, was named by TIME magazine in the top three best theatres for young audiences in the nation, calling the theatre "groundbreaking..one of the nation's most respected." CoterieTravel & Leisure Magazine's top ten list of children's theatres described the Coterie as "a theatre that resolutely refuses to talk down to its audience." The mainstage season consists of six full productions: three for older students (junior high and high school) and adults, and three for younger audiences and families. The emphasis is often on new or recent works. Through ingenious programming, the Coterie plays a vital role in the greater Kansas City area developing new generations of audiences for the performing arts with plays that reach a variety of age groups. In 1995, the prestigious Lila Wallace Reader's Digest Award was given to the theatre for its world premiere of Alicia in Wonder Tierra, a great success for the theatre involving actors in the Latino community in that production and many others. In addition, the mainstage season includes the Young Playwrights' Festival , which features the works of teen playwrights fostered through the Young Playwrights' Roundtable, facilitated by Artistic Director Church
