The Coterie Theatre made a big splash with the opening of its world premiere of THE SPONGEBOB MUSICAL FOR YOUNG AUDIENCES on November 4th at The Coterie Theatre located in Crown Center in Kansas City, MO. The new version of THE SPONGEBOB MUSICAL FOR YOUNG AUDIENCES has never been seen before and is adapted from the animated series, which has entertained children for the last 17 years. Though entertaining for younger audiences I found the musical to be tedious and the constant screaming to be annoying. Maybe I would have enjoyed it more if I had grown up during the SpongeBob era.

by Steve Wilson - Sep 19, 2021

An early start to the year's creepiest season, Halloween, began on Friday night with the return of The Coterie Theatre‚Äôs presentation of ELECTRIC POE 2021. This is the second year of the special engagement at the oldest cemetery in Kansas City, Union Cemetery, and runs through October 31. I described last year's performance as ‚ÄúHaunting‚ÄĚ, but the intensity of this year's program makes last year appear like ‚ÄėItsy, Bitsy Spider‚Äô.
