Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts has announced their performers and interactive art partners for the fourth annual Future Stages Festival. This free community event will be held at the Kauffman Center on Sunday, June 25 from 11 am – 4 pm. Future Stages Festival is designed to celebrate the arts and shine a spotlight on area youth performers. Showcasing diversity in the arts, the festival will include performances on three stages and interactive arts activities for all ages.

This year’s festival is presented by Saint Luke’s Health System and will feature 27 community groups from the greater Kansas City region performing throughout the day in Muriel Kauffman Theatre, Helzberg Hall, and the Saint Luke’s Outdoor Stage. Performance groups were selected through an application process, and represent a variety of performing arts disciplines.

Future Stages Festival invites attendees to engage in free arts activities hosted on the south lawn at the Kauffman Center and indoors in Brandmeyer Great Hall. Activities will feature a wide range of art forms including kite-making, stage combat training, community drum circles, and dance workshops.
