First Act Theatre Arts Fundraising Celebration


SAVE THE DATE: Saturday, April 1, 2023



Johnson County Arts & Heritage Center

8788 Metcalf Ave., Overland Park, KS 66212

The First Act

Usually used for exposition, the first act serves to establish the main characters, their relationships, and the world they live in. It sets the stage for what is to come. First Act Theatre Arts is Setting the Stage for Success – for our students, for our families, and for our organization. 

“The world is a complicated place, and there’s a lot of division between people. The performing arts tend to unify people in a way nothing else does.”

– David Rubenstein, chairman of the Kennedy Center for Performing Arts

About the Event

As our primary fundraiser of the year, Cocktails & Cabaret hopes to raise the critical funds to support First Act Theatre Art’s commitment to helping students establish themselves as the main character of their own story…by cultivating their unique talents, helping them to navigate and build community, developing character, building self-esteem, and setting the stage for success for the rest of their lives.


All proceeds from the evening will go toward scholarships, program expansion, and studio improvements.
