This next story begins about ten years ago when the artistic director of a theater we won’t name decided not to cast local actors in major roles. Not surprisingly, that didn’t go over too well with some very talented people here in town. And it soon led to the birth of the Kansas City Actors Theatre.
Since then, that other organization has changed its policy, but the Actors Theatre goes on, gearing up this summer for its eighth season.
As part of our performARTS series in conjunction with KC Studio Magazine, we take you inside the Kansas City Actors Theatre.
