The Understudies

The Understudies

The Understudies is MTH’s first ever Musical Theater Performance Group, and Kansas City’s ONLY intergenerational performance group created with/for community members from 18-99+ years old who have a love for musical theater, no previous experience required.

Finally, get your chance to perform songs from Broadway Musicals — from classic to contemporary, all culminating in a final performance with staging, props and more. The group will participate in an 8-week session, with an optional Musical Monday & Tuesday performance. All rehearsals will be held on Mondays from 6-8pm at Musical Theater Heritage in Crown Center. Our hope is to empower a love for musical theater, while creating an intergenerational experience that focuses on new learning and community growth. Join us for musical theater fun in a performance environment where everyone belongs!

Our first session will be held on Monday, February 10th, ending with a group performance on April 20 & 21 at Musical Monday and Tuesday.

Our second session will begin Monday, September 14th, ending with a group performance on November 9 & 10 at Musical Monday & Tuesday.

$200 includes the entire 8-week session with Director of Education & Community Programs, a local Music Director, a snazzy Understudies T-shirt, a Final Performance Opportunity at Musical Monday and Tuesday (show included), and refreshments at each rehearsal.
