WELCOME TO OUR THEATRE

KCMPT creates thought provoking, professional productions reveal the rich contributions that African Americans have made to the theatrical tradition in the United States. As the premier African American theater company in Kansas City, our primary goal is to explore theatrical works, old and new, that feature complex stories of African American life as a lens through which we realize our shared humanity. We seek to build coalitions and partnerships across the diversity spectrum that can create bridges that facilitate opportunities to understand and celebrate our similarities and our differences.

I was blown away by the acting in Sunset Baby last night!  Really powerful! Diane Capps (patron)
A Raisin in the Sun was absolutely marvelous! The actors were phenomenal! And the set was amazing. I've enjoyed theater for many years now and one thing that I always pay close attention to are the sets. I love sets...I love to go see how the directors are going to 'set' the stage. Well, in my opinion, this was one of the best that I've seen in a long time. Perfect for the time and reminded me so much of the actual movie. I loved, enjoyed, was thrilled every minute. Congratulations on a very successful production with many more to follow. Barbara Jewell
It (Radio Golf) was one of the best productions I've seen from KCMPT. You and your team really nailed it. Congratulations Marilyn Monroe
There's this family atmosphere that Harvey and Linda create, and you know it's genuine.. along with the respect that they give to the actors and crew.. I literally have separation issues for awhile after a KC Melting Pot show that I'm in closes. Sherri Roulette-Mosley
I love speaking and acting, but never had the opportunity to show my speaking ability until I auditioned for a part in the play Rachel at KCMPT. Thank you Mr. and Mrs. Williams, Ms. Nicole and KCMPT for believing in me and my talents, and I look forward to my next performance! Arianna Craig
I wanted to express my support for Nicole Hodges Persley's appointment as Artistic Director for KC Melting Pot Theatre. Nicole's experience, vision and commitment to the mission of KCMPT in this capacity will help expand the artistic direction and platform for amazing works of theatre in Kansas City.
