An Enchanted Evening: A Musical Retrospective: This original musical revue compiles our favorite songs from the shows presented over our 20 seasons of Broadway musicals sung by the outstanding vocalists from the past productions.
West Side Story: Set in 1957 New York City, West Side Story is a musical retelling of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet. Young lovers are trapped between prejudice and warring street gangs in the book by Arthur Laurents. Leonard Bernstein’s music and Stephen Sondheim’s lyrics created one of the most memorable pieces of theater in the history of Broadway.
Bark! The Musical follows six canine characters for a day at Doggie Daycare. From the little puppy who yearns to bark like a real dog, to the opera singing poodle and the street mutt who raps - this musical has huge heart. Presented from a dog’s point of view, the musical depicts the joy in man’s best friend.
Leawood Stage Company is proud to present the Kansas City premiere of this musical. The three performances and the companion Bark in the Park event will benefit Leawoof Dog Park and other local not-for-profit pet agencies.
Men, women and children of all ages will find an emotional connection with BARK! Howlingly funny and sometimes poignant, BARK! is the new must see American musical.
Mame is a wildly optimistic ode to a colorful, unconventional, well-lived life. The season will conclude in the fall with the classic Broadway musical Mame, featuring one of the most dynamic and lovable heroines of the Broadway stage. Newly orphaned Patrick comes to New York City to live with his well-to-do, flamboyant, eccentric, charismatic Auntie Mame. Following the stock market crash, fearless Mame tries to keep care of her nephew as she reinvents herself from party girl to working girl, Southern belle, world traveler, wealthy widow, and literary autobiographer.
