Theatre at the AHC

In the Heights 2018

There are a variety of opportunities at the Arts and Heritage Center for patrons to explore and experience theatre!


The Fine and Performing Arts Department provides a variety of performing, music, and dance classes throughout the year.   The classes allow youth through adults the opportunity to try out their theatrical chops or hone a skill.  LEARN MORE ABOUT THEATRE CLASSES AND PROGRAMS!

Throughout the summer, and occasionally throughout the year, youth have the opportunity to explore theatre more in depth through a Performing Arts Camp.  There are also camps geared specifically toward our youngest performers in our Pre-K Performing Arts Camps.

Theatre in the Park teaches Mainstage Courses to provide industry specific training in performance, backstage, and business aspects.  For more information on Mainstage Courses, check out the THEATRE IN THE PARK EDUCATION tab.


Theatre in the Park is the resident theatre company of the AHC and primary tenant of the black box theater.  Theatre in the Park produces shows at the AHC in the Spring, Fall, and Winter in addition to performing at the theatre in Shawnee Mission Park during the summer months.

Many other companies and groups utilize the AHC space too! We hope to see you at one of our TIP productions, or visiting as a patron of one of the other performing groups that call us home!  For more information on those performances, check out what is Up Next in the Black Box.

Curious if the Black Box will work for your next performance or corporate presentation? Check out the details for the space.
