Coterie Theatre

816-474-6552 |http://www.coterietheatre.org

The Coterie, a professional Equity theatre, is among the top five theatres serving families and young audiences in the United States, according to TIME magazine. Travel+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. In 2008, the Coterie launched its Coterie At Night series, which performs exclusively at night at venues other than the Coterie, targeting ages 17 to 21.

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.

Performed at Off Center Theater, Level 3 Crown Center

One of the most popular and beloved shows The Coterie has ever done returns to the stage! Gerald the Elephant is cautious and Piggie is not. Along with the three nutty Squirrelles, these “bestus” friends might get invited to a swimmy fancy costume dancey pool party or decide to spend the day playing ping-pong in silly hats. This lively and irresistibly charming musical look at friendship has become one of the best-selling and loved young readers’ series of the past decade.
