Darren Canady's "For...Girls" Reading April 15

Ann, Becky, and Susan are committed to bringing Ty’s daring interpretation of an American classic to the stage, but when ego, art, and a certain American obsession combine, the curtain may be rising on a theatrical wrecking ball.

Join us for our next Monday Night Reading of Darren Canady's For...Girls on April 15, 7:00 p.m. Our April location will be Second Presbyterian church at 55th and Brookside (318 E 55th St, Kansas City, Missouri 64113).

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.
