The L.M. Alcott Art Center Foundation is proud to once again qualify as one of the Top Rated Not for Profits on GREATNONPROFITS.ORG.

This is Alcott’s third year to receive this honor, 2011, 2013 and now 2015.

We appreciate all of the wonderful things that people have said about their experiences at the Alcott or with an Alcott event. It means that we are doing as promised and providing Artistic Opportunities to all!

We would also like to thank Greatnonprofits.org for the exposure and the chance for all to see what the public thinks of our humble inner-city arts organization.

“Twelfth Night” Directed by Anna Jennings

Alcott’s annual Shakespeare in the Parking Lot’s production starts this Saturday!

September 17 & 18, 2016 starting with pre-show at 2PM and the main show starting 3PM.

Please join us at Alcott’s tenth annual SITPLOT Production!

We are very proud to have been able to bring Culture into the Kansas City, Kansas area for the last fifteen years. It has been a long journey and we have done several of Shakespeare’s plays and can not wait for more.

Our cast has worked for several weeks to bring you a quality show and want you to share in the excitement of Live Theater! How this modern take on the story happens in an old boarding school.

These productions are rain or shine events and will be held inside in the Alcott Theater if weather ends up being a factor.

Admission is $5 with a non-perishable food item for Center of Hope Food Pantry.
