The Kansas City Actors Theatre, in partnership with The Edward Earls Legacy Fund, has announced a program offering first-time subscribers under 30 a discounted five-show subscription to KCAT’s 17/18 season. This $45 “Next Generation” subscription is being offered to help expand access to professional theater in Kansas City for younger patrons by drastically reducing the cost of subscribing.
Under this program, a limited number of subscriptions are being underwritten by The Edward Earls Legacy Fund to reduce the cost by more than half. “For a lot of young people, quality theater experiences are financially out of reach,” says Kansas City Actors Theatre Board President Darren Sextro. “David Earls and The Edward Earls Legacy Fund want to change that dynamic, and their generous, forward-thinking gift is going to change the lives of many young arts lovers in the coming years.”
The Edward Earls Legacy Fund operates under the John C. Griswold Foundation, which is focused on enriching the lives of others through education and support of the arts. The John C. Griswold Foundation has been an important part of the Kansas City non-profit community for 20 years.
Kansas City Actors Theatre’s previously announced season includes Agatha Christie’s AND THEN THERE WERE NONE, Sam Shepard’s A LIE OF THE MIND, Shakespeare’s KING LEAR (produced in cooperation with UMKC Theatre at the Spencer Theater), Gardner McKay’s SEA MARKS, and David Hare’s SKYLIGHT.
The “Next Generation” subscriptions are available to first-time subscribers to Kansas City Actors Theatre who are 30 and under by contacting the Central Ticket Office at (816) 235-6222.
