CEO/Executive Director/Board Chair Statement

With our first half century of producing world-class theatre behind us, KC Rep is preparing for an all-new and exciting chapter in our life. The new strategic plan and fundraising campaign put into action during our 2015-16 season are acting in full force in 2016-17.

KC Rep’s new Creative Future Fund, launched in 2015 is the catalyzing force by which KC Rep will achieve the initiatives set forth in our new strategic plan. This campaign will raise $5 million, which will be drawn down over the course of five years, enabling KC Rep to focus on sustainability and build our capacity to broaden our programmatic offerings and artistic operations. This campaign will make it possible for KC Rep to expand our new works initiative, strengthen our youth education programs, and grow our audiences – and ensure our vitality for decades to come.

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. KC Rep 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 KC Rep 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 KC Rep. Kansas City area citizens from across the metropolitan area become lifelong participants in and/or supporters of live theatre; a trend which KC Rep is committed to supporting and growing.
Program Success Monitored By

KC Rep 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

The renovations to KC Rep’s Spencer Theatre, which began during our 50th anniversary season, were completed in November 2015. Improvements to our main stage home include fresh carpet, newly-upholstered seats, state-of-the art lighting and acoustic design, improved ADA compliance, enhanced equipment for the theatre's assisted listening system, 5,500 square feet of new lobby space, and more restrooms. While this renovation was underway, KC Rep kicked off its 2015-16 season with an exciting collaboration. Our refreshing treatment of the Sondheim classic SUNDAY IN THE PARK WITH GEORGE was staged in a most fitting setting: the Atkins Auditorium in Kansas City’s Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art. Our 2016 season also saw the implementation of a strategic plan that will help us strengthen our education programs, expand our new works initiative, and grow our audience development efforts. Under the guidance of Director of New Works Marissa Wolf, KC Rep’s new works program enjoyed a full year of exciting programming including staged readings, panel discussions, and world premiere productions: BLUEPRINTS TO FREEDOM, ROOF OF THE WORLD, and FIRE IN DREAMLAND and LOT’S WIFE, both of which ran in rotating repertory as part of the inaugural year of the OriginKC New Works Festival.

Population Served Adolescents Only (13-19 years), At-Risk Populations,
Short-Term Success Prior to each residency, KC Rep teaching artists meet with classroom teachers to tailor education outcomes for each group of students. In this way, KC Rep 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. KC Rep’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 KC Rep 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 teaching artists (professional actors) that KC Rep hires to deliver the program.
Examples of Program Success

KC Rep served 400 students through Rep on the Road in 2015-16. We continued our longstanding partnership with the DeLaSalle Education Center where, in 2015, teaching artists worked with eight high school kids to create a student-designed showcase entitled HIGH SCHOOL: THE GOOD AND THE BAD, which was based on the students’ life experiences. The showcase included actor-led improvisations, scripted material by classic playwrights such as Thornton Wilder, and scenes and monologues written by the students.

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.
Program Budget $277,000.00

Short-Term Success Students from across the metropolitan area have the opportunity to experience fully-staged, professional theatrical productions regardless of their or their school’s ability to afford the cost of tickets or transportation. Student experiences are enriched through talk-backs with cast and crew.
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 Student Matinee Series attendance is tracked and Melinda McCrary, director of education, collaborates with an advisory council of teachers to create a rubric of standards for assessment for each student matinee production. These rubrics are the basis for pre- and post-show surveys that measure students’ satisfaction with and understanding of their Student Matinee Series experiences.
Examples of Program Success During KC Rep’s 2015-16 season 10,361 students attended 24 performances of 6 Student Matinee Series productions. Of those attendees, 700 students and chaperones enjoyed their visit at no cost thanks to our Support the Arts in School (STARS) program, which provides subsidies for those unable to afford to attend performances.
Description

KC Rep’s Conversation Series offers pre- and post-performance forums in which scholars, actors, and members of the production team discuss the show. Actor’s Forums, Scholar’s Forums, Meet the Creative Team discussions, Community in Conversation discussions, and Making the Play discussions all are offered during the run of each regular season production.

Short-Term Success Participants gain a deeper understanding of the themes and production process of the KC Rep 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 KC Rep. 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.
