KC Edventures Guide for ages 12-14
Voted "One of the 5 Best Kids Theaters in America" by Time Magazine, the Coterie is one of the few Kansas City places where teens can experience live theater that is both thought-provoking and entertaining. Each year, the Coterie does a nice job of offering shows that appeal to all ages. Below, we highlight this season's shows for teens.
Before the Show:
- We always recommend reading the book that's related to the show.
- Find out if you can get extra credit from any of your teacher's for attending a show and writing a review for class.
- If you're interested in acting, ask about the opportunities available with the Coterie Theatre.
