Our Senior Show speaks for itself. Our Day Camp each June is for younger performers, ages 7 to 12.
Broadway at Baker is for students entering high school up to those who just graduated from high school (13-18).
Have any of your students gone on to Broadway or Hollywood?
Many of our MTKC students have been successful on Broadway or in Hollywood, and hundreds of them are currently using
their theatre and music talents to work professionally. Many of them graciously return to MTKC to teach, train and share
their expertise with our students. They will tell you they gravitate back to the program because of their personal experience
as an MTKC student.
How is MTKC funded?
Music Theatre Kansas City is a not-for-profit 501(c)3. In an effort to control tuition costs to our students, MTKC relies on fundraisers,
individual gifts, and grants to maintain the quality of program.
Where do your students come from?
Most of them are from the Kansas City metropolitan area, especially during the school year. However, we have had students from all over the country attend our camps. We welcome all students who are looking for an intensive week-long experience in music theatre performance.
Are the camps/workshops limited to a certain number of students?
Most of our mainstage shows feature casts of about 35-40 young people. But they vary according to show requirements.
