We see several shows a year at the Coterie. Their staging and costuming is so creative! So many children's theaters skew to very young audiences.. I take my teenager and his friends regularly. A nice mix of educational and purely entertaining shows. Attending the Coterie is one of my very favorite things about living in Kansas City!

The Coterie is truly an incredible theater. Bringing a wide variety of stories to life every season, it is wonderful for all ages. It is a particularly great theater experience for children. It is an intimate theater, fitting maybe 150 people, and the actors feel within reach. There is no need to sit on Daddy's shoulders for the little ones... More

This is SUCH a fun place to come to see live theatre! It's a very intimate theatre and the actors are almost within arms reach. They offer a great range of shows for a broad range of audiences, and there isn't a bad seat in the house! The prices are also incredibly reasonable. A must-visit Kansas City family destination!!

I took my teenager to see the Dracula show and it was amazing. The actor performed a one man show of all the characters from Bram Stoker's original novel. This particular performance is definitely geared towards older children and wouldn't be able to hold the attention of anyone younger than 13-14.

My kids love going to The Coterie , however it'd be great if they could do more tween age plays as its hard to find wholesome entertainment for this age

We took my 2 1/2 yr old daughter to see Lyle the Crocodile yesterday. Very pleased! Great show and perfectly timed - not too long for little ones. Kids can sit right down in front of the stage and the actors interact with them. Everyone who worked there was very kind and helpful. Can't wait for the next preschool themed... More
