CEO/Executive Director/Board Chair Statement
With our 2014-15 season, KCRep celebrated its first half century of producing world-class theatre. Today, we continue a journey that began in 2015 with the approval of our new strategic plan. This exciting new chapter in our theatre’s life is driven by that strategic plan and the fundraising campaign put into action to serve it.
 
KCRep’s Creative Future Fund, launched in 2015, is the catalyzing force by which KCRep will achieve the initiatives set forth in our strategic plan. This campaign will raise $5 million, to be drawn down over the course of five years, enabling KCRep to focus on sustainability and build our capacity to broaden our programmatic offerings and artistic operations. The Creative Future Fund will make it possible for KCRep to expand our new works initiative, strengthen our youth education programs, and grow our audiences – and ensure our vitality for decades to come.
 
In its first two years, the Creative Future Fund has driven inspirational performances and staggering growth. This work sets the pace for artistic innovation in Kansas City, and we are thrilled to see the local community stand with us as partners as we ride this momentum into the season ahead. Through the dedication of our staff and with support from our generous donors, the work prescribed in our strategic plan has begun to pay off. With more than $3.5 million raised as of October 2017, we look forward to closing this campaign in 2018.
Programs
Description KCRep’s 2017-18 season includes BETWEEN THE LINES, the story of a girl who finds that the lines between reality and fantasy are beginning to blur; FENCES, August Wilson’s play about the hopes and dreams of an African American father and son; A CHRISTMAS CAROL, a fresh adaptation of Kansas City’s favorite holiday tradition; THE CURIOUS INCIDENT OF THE DOG IN THE NIGHT-TIME, the stage adaptation of the best-selling book about an autistic boy’s quest to solve a murder mystery; SEX WITH STRANGERS, a tantalizing take on the fine line between our private and public lives in the digital age; and SWEENEY TODD, Stephen Sondheim’s beloved musical about a vengeful barber. The season concludes with KCRep’s third annual OriginKC: New Works Festival, featuring two shows produced in rotating repertory: BROTHER TOAD, Playwright in Residence Nathan Louis Jackson’s latest play about what happens when two Black families in Kansas City encounter guns in their lives; and WELCOME TO FEAR CITY, one boy’s search for his poetic voice in the chaos and hope of the 1977 New York City blackout.

Short-Term Success Short-term success is focused on exposing the community to the benefits of diverse, literate, and timely plays with high artistic standards. KCRep is proud of its many achievements including: welcoming and growing demographically-diverse audiences; producing shows that interest, challenge, and entertain attendees; attracting respected and demographically-diverse artistic, production, and administrative talent; producing work that interests, challenges, and motivates board and staff; and creating a board-approved plan to achieve financial stability, ensuring long-term sustainability that will enable KCRep to serve Kansas City artists and audiences for generations to come.
Long-Term Success Kansas City is known as a national leader in the performing arts. Top regional theatres and the most talented directors, playwrights, and actors continue to partner with KCRep. Kansas City area citizens from across the metropolitan area become lifelong participants in and/or supporters of live theatre; a trend which KCRep is committed to supporting and growing.
Program Success Monitored By

KCRep maintains records to track the following key indicators of success: subscription and individual ticket sales; attendance; employment of professional actors, artists, and technicians; audience feedback; volunteers; number and types of donors at various contribution levels; date and description of all media coverage including critical reviews. Performances are reviewed, with feedback utilized for future season planning. Ticket sales and attendance statistics are monitored continuously throughout the season and factored into marketing and promotional decisions.

Examples of Program Success In keeping with the imperatives of our 2015 strategic plan, KCRep entered the 2016-17 season prepared to ramp up efforts on several fronts including new works development and youth education. Throughout the season KCRep worked to build our capacity to serve more students than ever before. By the end of the year we had offered an unprecedented 29 student matinees of six season shows for (an also-unprecedented) 12,566 students. The launch of our OriginKC new works program was one of the defining characteristics of our 2015-16 season. Patrons filled the room for eleven new play readings and made a boisterous crowd at two Playwright Slams. Even our OriginKC: New Works Festival, the crown jewel of new works development at KCRep, saw expansion this year. In addition to staging two world premiere productions in rotating repertory on Copaken Stage, KCRep collaborated with the UMKC Department of Theatre to produce a workshop production of ANTONY AND CLEOPATRA at Spencer Theatre.

Short-Term Success Prior to each residency, KCRep teaching artists meet with classroom teachers to tailor education outcomes for each group of students. In this way, KCRep assists educators in meeting their specific goals and ensures that all students can participate. By using Rep on the Road to deepen the impact of Student Matinee Series productions, youth are encouraged to understand the world through the lense of great stage works. KCRep’s youth education programs complement the everyday educations of Kansas City’s students, enriching, formalizing, and reinvigorating the instruction they receive in the classroom.
Long-Term Success Kansas City area students from alternative, public, and private schools increase their understanding of and their interest and participation in theatre. As a result, they become well-rounded, educated, and engaged future audience members and arts supporters.
Program Success Monitored By KCRep teaching artists check in with classroom teachers daily during each residency to ensure all established goals are being met. Post-residency feedback from teachers and students is analyzed for suggestions and to implement improvements. We also take note of repeat clients and growth in number of students of the schools that return each year as well as the return rate of the professional teaching artists that KCRep hires to deliver the program.
Examples of Program Success

KCRep served 800 students through Rep on the Road in 2016-17. We continued our longstanding partnership with the DeLaSalle Education Center where, in 2017, teaching artists worked with members of the after-school Drama Club to create a student-designed showcase featuring excerpted scenes from A RAISIN IN THE SUN alongside songs and original monologues and poetry.

Description The Student Matinee Series provides full productions of KC Rep plays to area students during school hours at reduced prices. After each student matinee performance, a guided Q&A with members of the cast and crew is held in the theatre.

Long-Term Success

Kansas City area students from alternative, public, and private schools increase their interest and participation in performing arts, especially live theatre. As a result, they become educated and engaged future audience members and arts supporters and develop a broader understanding of the world around them.

Program Success Monitored By KCRep’s department of education tracks program participation and records attendance numbers, school demographics, special needs, and more. When possible, assessment also includes video recording of post-show discussions and the compilation of testimonial letters from students.
Examples of Program Success During KCRep’s 2016-17 season 12,566 students and chaperones attended 29 performances of 6 Student Matinee Series productions. Of those attendees, more than 3,100 attendees enjoyed their visit at no cost thanks to our Support the Arts in School (STARS) program, which provides subsidies for those unable to afford the nominal price of student matinee tickets.
Description

KCRep’s Conversation Series offers opportunities for KCRep’s artists and audiences to connect through informal discussion. Free pre- and post-performance Conversation Series events invite scholars, actors, and members of the production team to discuss the show.

Short-Term Success Participants gain a deeper understanding of the themes and production processes of the KCRep productions. Participants become aware that attending a live production is not a passive activity, but an enjoyable and enlightening two-way interaction between themselves, the actors, the production team, and one another.
Long-Term Success Kansas City theatregoers become lifelong learners who are educated about and genuinely interested in all aspects of theatrical production and return every season to watch diverse, literate, and timely plays at KCRep. Because community members have access to the behind-the-scenes and in-depth information provided at these forums, their understanding of the work on the stage is enhanced. Through these learning opportunities adults enhance their own creativity and ability to think critically.
Program Success Monitored By Conversation Series attendance is tracked and attendee feedback, when offered, is recorded and reviewed.
Examples of Program Success

In the 2016-17 season a total of 4,279 patrons attended 145 Conversation Series discussions.

Description

Program Frequently Assessed Yes
Short-Term Success Upon its launch in 2017, SYTE was enthusiastically received by the Kansas City community. 38 students from 17 Kansas and Missouri schools collaborated to devise and write an original play that they titled TO BE HUMAN. After four weeks of work, 35 SYTE artists took to the stage to perform the play while the rest, who expressed special interest in technical theatre, contributed to the production as wardrobe and technical assistants. Two free public performances of TO BE HUMAN were performed for 663 adoring patrons.
Long-Term Success This program convenes and connects youth from across Kansas City, helping teens reach across the barriers of class and color through fun activities that provoke thought, encourage expression, and incubate a sense of pride in themselves and their place in the world. SYTE artists examine their roles as creators and storytellers in our community. By encouraging youth to find empowerment in the process of discovering and sharing their personal stories, SYTE builds artistic and interpersonal skills that will serve participants throughout their lives.
Program Success Monitored By KCRep’s assistant director of education records program participation, reports on daily activities, and administers pre- and post- program evaluations.
Examples of Program Success A post-program survey asked SYTE artists to respond to a series of statements about themselves and their artistic abilities. 92% agreed, “I am more skilled at expressing myself;” 85% agreed, “I am less nervous working and sharing with others;” 86% agreed, “I am more confident now that I can communicate my opinions and ideas;” and 82% agreed, “I understand better how I can use theatre to engage with my community and friends.”
