Performances are held in the newly renovated Van Cliburn Auditorium.

Opportunities for immediate performance assignments are an additional plus in this department. For more than 50 years the KC Theatre program has enjoyed an excellent reputation state-wide and the support of its administration and campus-wide faculty.
