2019 Theatre Under the Stars

The Music Studio of Warrensburg and Phoenix Productions

2019 Theatre Under the Stars!

Thank you Warrensburg for coming out and supporting our 2018 season at Theatre Under the Stars! We wish to thank the Johnson County Historical Society for allowing us to use their grounds these past two summers and regret that we will not be returning. We are excited about a new performance venue that we are working on for 2019 that will provide a better experience for our audiences, be more centrally located, and allow us to have a long-term solution!

2019 Shows Have Been Selected!

Thanks to members of our 2018 casts who took time out of their lives to participate in a script reading group as well as the input from our audiences this past summer, we identified six shows that became our finalists for the 2019 production season.

We listened to the feedback from our cast members, production team,  and parents after the season closed. As a result, we have decided to take a break from The Sound of Music in 2019 and plan to bring it back again in 2020. In addition, we are going to spread out our season over a greater number of weeks and give the kids time off between productions in favor of inviting  performing groups from outside our area to visit and perform!

We are excited to announce our 2019 Season which will include…

Elephant and Piggie: We Are in a Play! (Early May, Dates to be Announced)

Everyone’s favorite story team, Gerald and Piggie along with their friends The Squirelles, Delivery Dog, and Ice Cream Penguin will enchant your child in this one hour musical adventure just for kids. You never know what will happen when these two team up! You can bet that there will be lots of fun, but (oh no!) what if they have a … disagreement? Or a quarrel? Of, dare I say it, some kind of tragic accident that leads to a predicament with unintended consequences!?!?!

Join us in our Black Box Theatre to find out this May!

Thoroughly Modern Millie JrIt’s 1922 in New York City, and a young Millie Dillmount has just moved to the Big Apple in search of a new life.  Her grand plan is to find a job as a secretary for a wealthy man and then marry him.
