I never knew this place existed. We went with a group to see the Charlie Brown Christmas and it was very well done. The seats were just a little tight for adults by for kids they would be plenty big, and the show itself was great.

We have spotlight tickets to the Coterie and love seeing the musical productions. This was a little different his time. We Enjoyed the Coterie's production of The Miracle Worker. The cast was multi-ethnic. The performance was shadow interpreted and included a 'visual description ' script. I love that our cow town has experiences like this for our children.

The two best shows we saw were "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang" and the currently running "A Year With Frog and Toad" -- which was the best. show. ever!! We liked... More

Year with frog and toad. I could of fallen asleep. Or maybe brought in a beer. But they do not allow food or drinks. Kiddo loved it. That's all that matters right. Pretty packed. Seems all the big bald dads were in the front row. That's my luck. Will be back at kiddos request.

The children are seated at the edge of the stage where they become a part of the setting .. Adults are seated in a theater setting behind them. Seating is based on first come, first serve basis. Get there early to get a good seat. Live characters in a Live performance. Children and Seniors only pay 10.00. UNBELIEVABLE!!! It really... More

The cozy theater with every seat filled "after" the Christmas and New Year's holidays, says a lot about the quality of this show. The actors/puppeteers were enthusiastic, genuine and seemed fully wrapped up in sharing this magical story with us. Their expressions, characters, humor and beautiful singing voices gave me goose bumps several times. It was so well cast!!! The... More

I happened to find this play on-line and was in Kansas City for a mini-vacation with my grandson. We went to a Friday night performance of Rudolf the red nose reindeer and we both really enjoyed it! Well done!

The Coterie Theatre is one of Kansas City's main treasures. Every single time I have visited, the plays and actors are creative and talented. One time we visited and saw "The Hungry Caterpillar". The Coterie Theatre actors and staff were amazing.
