About Theater League
Founded in 1976, Theater League is a not-for-profit, tax-exempt, community-based performing arts organization dedicated to the development of professional theater, both as a cultural and an educational resource. Serving its constituent communities by producing and presenting Broadway musicals, plays and new works in local performing arts centers, Theater League enriches the lives of more than 300,000 theatergoers annually, made possible by the support of the organization’s 30,000 members, who subscribe to Theater League’s cultural offerings.
Theater League presents National Broadway Tours and professional touring productions to the following communities:
- Akron, OH
- Colorado Springs, CO
- Eugene, OR
- Kansas City, MO
- Phoenix, AZ
- Santa Barbara, CA
- South Bend, IN
- Thousand Oaks, CA
- Toledo, OH
- Wichita, KS
Performing arts centers and historic theaters play host to the organization’s Broadway musicals and plays. Related activities include special performances for students of the performing arts, which feature question and answer sessions with theater artists and our Theater ROcKs (Reach Out to Kids) program, which brings at-risk youth to the theater for special educational and cultural opportunities.
Theater League’s presentations include the top national touring companies of all major Broadway musicals of the last thirty-five years. In addition, Theater League’s own in-house producing division mounts annual revivals of classic Broadway fare featuring stars of stage, screen and television. These Theater League produced tours allow the organization further flexibility in meeting the diverse schedules and goals of each of the venues and communities we serve.
Founder and President Mark Edelman participates in the national theater dialogue through membership in the League of American Theaters and Producers and the National Alliance for Musical Theatre. The organization takes a leading role in cooperative arts marketing efforts in the communities it serves and supports the facilities it calls home through grants, memberships and special promotional opportunities. In addition, outreach projects include Theater League’s Teatro Latino division, created to bring Spanish-language plays to audiences in the West and Southwest.
IT STARTS ON 12th STREET IN KANSAS CITY…
Where Count Basie tickled the ivories at the Reno Club and Big Joe Turner shouted the blues. Where cats like Lester Young, Mary Lou Williams, Buster Smith and the Bird lit up a strip of clubs, juke joints and honky-tonks with their brand new sound.
12th STREET JUMP brings back that great era of Kansas City jazz on public radio’s weekly jazz, blues and comedy jam. Hosts Eboni Fondren and Pete Weber, musical director Joe Cartwright, vocalist David Basse, bassist Tyrone Clark and drummer Mike Warren and some very special guests serve it up every Saturday night at midnight, live! where the joint’s always jumpin’ at the Broadway Jazz Club, 3601 Broadway in Midtown Kansas City.
Join us live! on KCUR FM 89.3 or play your favorite show from the 12th STREET JUMP archive. If you’re not in Kansas City, ask your public radio station to carry 12th STREET JUMP — it’s free, every week, from PRX – the Public Radio Exchange.
