We went to go see a performance at the Kotary theater at Crown Center. Bonus because it’s free parking on the weekend! The theater is inviting and is wonderful, intimate, and full of energy.

We came to KC on a family weekend vacation. We got last minute tickets to Goosebumps. We took our son, age 8. We all enjoyed it. The actors are very talented! I love the interactive aspect. It was my favorite part of our trip!

This is a perfect place to introduce your young ones to theatre. Check the age recommendations for the show. Not all are appropriate for the very young. Kids can sit on the floor at stage level, while the adults sit in comfortable theater seats. Most...More

We've seen multiple shows at the theatre, and the ones we have seen have been fantastic. The Christmas shows are always good. The shows for younger kids are always interactive and fun.

Madagascar the Musical is cute, funny, and interactive. Couples, families, and groups were all enticed into moving and clapping. Most Coterie productions are aimed at young children, but Madagascar is lively family entertainment for about the same price as a movie. Crown Center garage parking...More
