MDC Playwright News: March 2019


Congratulations to Emma Carter, who has just started rehearsals for The Light Burns Blue by Silva Semerciyan with the Johnson County Arts & Heritage Center and StagePlay.

StagePlay is an immersive, performing arts field trip for children grades K-8 that adopts a holistic learning approach designed to satisfy Kansas & Missouri State educational standards. StagePlay is singular in its formation, holistic in its practice, and unique to Johnson County. It is the ONLY performing arts, education-based field trip providing three days of classroom curriculum, a theatrical performance, and engagement activities (including S.T.E.A.M.) facilitated through a field-trip model for area school districts.

Stageplay debuts this upcoming April. Content is geared towards grades 3-8. There is one public performance on Saturday, April 6 at 2pm. All other performances are just for schools.


Congratulations to Kevin King for Swallows being selected for the
Inge Play Lab in May!
